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.
April 2020: Autism Film Festival
Help us select films, organize the event, and plan the lobby reception. The event is 4/30/19 at AFS Cinema in North Austin.
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.
Jingle & Mingle Holiday Party: December 2020
We’ll need help with party planning, getting silent auction items, and on the day of the event.
February 14, 2021: 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. Run/walk/volunteer for #TeamAutism by emailing email@example.com.
If interested in learning more or volunteering for any of the above, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (512) 479-4199 ext 4.
