Our Commitment to You
As a volunteer, we commit to provide you with appropriate orientation, training, and program assignment. We make every effort to provide a dynamic, educational, and rewarding experience for every one of our 80+ volunteers. We know that you will gain as much, if not more, from your experience helping individuals with autism as they will gain from your support!
Engaged volunteers who are passionate about helping others support innovative Centre programs for children, youth, and young adults with autism. We have ongoing intake of volunteers for our programs throughout the year. Complete our volunteer application online and upload your resume.
