Ausome Program Volunteer (15 years and older)

Looking for a valuable, hands-on experience while giving back to your community? Our program volunteers work with trained and qualified staff to provide individualized support to youth and children living with autism at our many different sport programs. Programs operate across the city of Ottawa and almost all are easily accessible by public transportation.


Corporate Volunteer Opportunities
