Volunteer


We could not fulfill our mission of improving the lives of all affected by autism without our wonderful, dedicated volunteers! Whether you’re interested in helping at an event, starting a social or support group, lending an administrative hand, performing outreach to community members, or joining an event committee, we value your time and energy.

Volunteers are needed for the following events and activities. We’ll provide you with training and materials, and nearly all volunteer jobs can be done remotely. There is no requirement to come to our office or attend meetings.

Ongoing: Resource Fairs & Charity Fairs

We often receive requests to attend events so that people can learn about our organization. There are many requests for this and our small staff cannot fulfill them all. These events are usually 2-3 hours on weekends, evenings, or sometimes during normal business hours. They require a volunteer to set up a table with our tablecloth, brochures, and flyers, and hand them to attendees.

Ongoing: Office & Administrative Help

We can always use an extra hand in our Austin office! From filing to writing thank you notes, we can definitely find work to be done!

November 15, 2019: Jingle & Mingle Holiday Kickoff Party

We need assistance with planning and getting silent auction items from July-October 2019.

February 16, 2020: Austin Marathon

We are an official charity in this event & have an aid station along the marathon route! We need many volunteers to hand out drinks and cheer on runners on marathon day. (Or you can run/walk for #TeamAutism here!).

April 2020: Autism Film Festival

Help us select films, organize the event, and plan the lobby reception. We’ll begin working on this in September 2019!

November 2020: Texas Autism Bike Ride & Fun Run

Assistance is needed to get food donated for participants, help in planning & organizing, and on the day of the event.
