This thesis will describe the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program on a national level and explain the history and background of the program. It will then focus on explaining the particular history and success of VITA at University High School in Waco, Texas. I will explain my involvement as the Baylor Student Coordinator for the Baylor/University High School Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Partnership in 2019 and 2020. I will then outline the benefits of having the VITA site at UHS for both the volunteers involved and the Waco community. The final section of the paper will discuss future implications for this partnership, and set forth a recommended timeline of planning for this partnership for the next Baylor Student Coordinator.
