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.

Texas Autism Walk 

Assistance is needed to get snacks donated for participants, help in planning & organizing, and setting up on the day of the event. April 24, 2022.  In-person in Austin-area, virtual event- join from anywhere! Volunteer to sign up here for day of event.

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 distribute handouts to attendees.

Help us select films, organize and plan the event. Fall 2022.

Jingle & Mingle Holiday Party

Need help with party planning, getting silent auction items, and on the day of the event itself. December 2022-Austin. Silent Auction- statewide/online.
