Calling All Volunteers & Interns!

The Autism Project continues to remain at the forefront of developing innovative programs that enrich the lives of individuals impacted by autism spectrum disorders, their families and the professionals who work to support and educate them. This would not be possible without the dedication of our wonderful volunteers and generosity of our surrounding community.

We welcome volunteers and interns. The Autism Project offers many experiences for volunteers and interns, including social skills groups, summer camp, parent and professional trainings, support groups, fundraising, public relations and administrative responsibilities. Please submit your completed volunteer application to our Office Manager, Linda Houle at lhoule@theautismproject.org.
