Volunteers are the heart of Ausome

Change your life and the lives of others by joining our team of passionate Ausome volunteers. Volunteers do not require prior autism experience as they are provided with training and guidance from our experienced staff.



Covid-19–specific policies are in place for the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, children and families.


Ausome Program Volunteer

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

Let Ausome be a part of your strategy for Corporate Social Responsibility. Our goal is to work closely with you to coordinate a volunteer experience that matches your organization’s needs. Come volunteer with Ausome and continue to support the community your business operates in.


Student Volunteer Opportunities and Placements

Are you a high school student looking to complete your volunteer hours? Are you a college or university student looking for programs to complete placements as part of your curriculum? We have lots of student opportunities to help you achieve your academic goals.


Special Event or Behind–the–Scene Volunteers

From helping at the registration table to joining a special events committee to taking photos at a program, Special Event and Behind–the–Scene volunteers play a key role in guaranteeing the success of Ausome’s fundraising events and activities. Tap into your strengths and contribute as a volunteer for unique opportunities where your expertise can be applied.
