Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
Need to earn community service time? Want to “learn while you earn”? Join the VITA program where you will learn how to prepare Income Tax Returns! This Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sponsored program teaches you to prepare basic tax returns. Once you have completed the course you will receive the IRS Link & Learn Certification and implement your training by assisting taxpayers in the completion of their income tax returns. Nimitz has been partnering with the IRS for the last 15 years in this work and presently assists about 350 taxpayers and/or families each year. We need your help to continue – sign up with Mr. Manale in the cafeteria any morning before school or e-mail him and he will provide the information.
Nimitz Green Team
The Nimitz Green Team meets each Wednesday after school to empty the recycling bins in the classrooms and offices. See Mrs. Dodds.
Teen Court is an exciting program that is making a difference in young people's lives.

Irving Symphony Orchestra
The Irving Symphony Orchestra has a wonderful, volunteer program for area high school students called Ovation. They students volunteer the night of each symphony concert and assist with tickets, programs and assist the patrons that attend. In addition, the students receive community service hours as well as two free tickets to each concert. We have had a great group of music students participate each season and wanted to extend the invitation to each campus and to any students that might want to join.
