Starbucks has selected MAOF as the beneficiary of its Global Month of Service in April 23, 2016. Therefore, Starbucks employees and volunteers will be at MAOF’s headquarters creating a beautification project by painting one of our structures. While this project is taking place, Starbucks leaders will join with approximately 100 youth ages 16-24 in providing three different workshops to improve social and advancement skills from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Youth will be divided into three groups and each group will attend three different workshops. Workshops will include Interviewing Skills, Resume Writing, and a Leadership Panel; which will consist of success stories from Starbucks executives. Youth will have the opportunity to apply for jobs during the event to various Starbucks locations around Los Angeles area.

Since 1993, MAOF has provided free tax preparation services for households whose income falls below $52,000 through its VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program).” Volunteers participate in IRS-certified training sessions, allowing MAOF to prepare approximately 1,600 tax returns each year.
Clients not only receive FREE tax preparation services, they also learn about available tax credits such as the Earned income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Tax Credit for Elderly of the Disabled. The VITA program is a major asset for the Los Angeles community, providing information and assistance to many individuals who would not otherwise be able to file a tax return.
