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 60+ 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!

We are looking for engaged volunteers who are passionate about helping others support innovative Centre programs for children, youth and adults with autism. On-boarding for new volunteers takes place four times a year, 4-6 weeks prior to the start of our community programs.

The people we serve come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes the Centre for Autism Services Alberta stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm to empower autistic individuals and their families to thrive, you will find a great opportunity at the Centre. We welcome the unique contributions future staff and volunteers can bring in terms of education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, color, religion, different abilities, sexual orientation, and beliefs.

Are you a current student or a recent graduate? We would love to have you join us as a volunteer!
