Volunteer

As a non-profit organization, Autism Nova Scotia relies on the generous gift of time from our many volunteers to run our important programs, hold our successful fundraising events, create policies for change at the volunteer board level and much, much more.

Our programs could not run without the help of our wonderful volunteers. We train all of our volunteers with best practice strategies for supporting Autistic individuals.

“Volunteering at ANS is incredible, and you get to meet so many exceptional people on the spectrum. I don’t think any other experience is as fun either, I always look forward to my volunteer nights!” – Volunteer
