VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Program

The VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program at Kansas City Kansas Community College teaches students how to prepare individual income tax returns so that they can subsequently prepare individual tax returns for low-income taxpayers in the community.  This idea of "service learning" benefits the students and the community.

The KCKCC VITA site is made up of students who enroll in the class for credit (offered in spring semesters) as well as other volunteers from the community.  Last year, we had about 40 volunteers (about half of which were students enrolled in the class), and we prepared over 800 tax returns.  This saved the local community thousands of dollars in fees they would have to pay if they were going to a paid tax-preparer for the same service.

For information on the class and/or service, please contact Chad Marmon at 

My Shelf to Yours

My Shelf to Yours promotes scholarship, leadership, entrepreneurship, and sustainability by selling donated used books both on-line and on-ground.  As of July 2015, My Shelf to Yours has assisted more than 300 students with textbooks.
