Autism Volunteer Opportunites
At Project Autism, we value every volunteer hour provided to us. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to be the best steward of our dollars and our volunteer program is just one part of doing so.
We have a variety of options available for those looking to volunteer, from typing to attending community events. Schedules are flexible as we know that our volunteers may have full-time jobs, families and other things to do on a daily basis.
Currently, we host volunteer orientations every other month for those that are interested in joining the Project Autism Volunteer Team. The orientation is required for all volunteers. For information on upcoming dates, please contact us at [email protected].
