What's Included

Purpose: Volunteers will encourage participation, model appropriate behavior and language, and provide an accepting environment where all participants are appreciated for their individuality, and treated with respect and kindness. Criteria: Age requirements vary by activity. Volunteers must be willing to follow directions and actively engage participants with autism. Training is not required for Social or Sports programs but volunteers are expected to behave in a mature, responsible manner. (*Volunteers in Sports programs do not need to be proficient in that sport. Their primary purpose is social engagement and modeling.) Supervision: Adult staff ratios will vary depending on the activities and the abilities of the individuals with ASD that are participating. Assisting staff in guiding and protecting individuals with autism is partially the responsibility of the volunteer. Registration: Everyone must RSVP online a minimum of 48 hours prior to the scheduled activity. (please note that space is frequently limited and may be filled prior to the 48-hour deadline.)
