Volunteer

If you would like to donate your time to the Autism Society of Minnesota, we have a variety of ways you can help. Many of AuSM’s volunteer opportunities are connected to acceptance and fundraising events including Steps of Hope, our annual state conference, the AuSM Gala, the AuSM Golf Classic, special in-office projects and more.

If you would like to be added to the list of volunteers we call when we need special support, complete the Volunteer Sign-Up Form below and indicate the areas in which you would like to help.
