Volunteering at Els for Autism Foundation
“If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life.”

We are extremely grateful to our many volunteers who help provide added opportunities for local individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.
Since January of 2019, the Foundation has had 41 people volunteer their time and expertise giving the Foundation 965 hours of support and we are proud to say two volunteers have been hired into paid positions!
The Foundation has a variety of volunteer positions available ranging from assisting in tennis class to exploring the community with a group of our adult clients. All of the arts and recreation classes are split up by age group starting with age 5 through adults.
The second fall session is getting started this week for recreation and then a new session will begin in early spring. No experience is required – all volunteers will view several training webinars before starting and those 18 and over must complete a background check.
