Autism Speaks Walks rely on volunteers to assist in many capacities through serving on a walk committee. Committee volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to: team and participant recruitment and fundraising mentors, corporate sponsorship outreach, walk media outreach, school outreach and more. Your time commitment can vary from a few hours a month to more depending on what you are able to do or would like to help with. Meetings occur once a month for about 1.5-2 hours. You can recruit your friends, family and coworkers to become a part of the Walk committee as well!
To learn more please contact Leslie Bloom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The success of Autism Speaks Walk depends on the dedication and support of its volunteers. Volunteers assist in many capacities - checking in participants, providing encouragement at water stops and cleaning up after the event which in turn reduces event costs and drives more funds directly to the mission. You can recruit friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!
Volunteer as a Team
Recruit your friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team. We'll do our best to assign you to the same area so you can spend the day together. Please remind each member of your team to register online so that we know how many people to plan for. Include your team name in the available field and we will know you are together.
Volunteer as an Individual
Make new friends as you play an integral role in making your city's Autism Speaks Walk event a success.
You can also volunteer before the Walk. Select this option toward the bottom of the form. We will put you in touch with the Event Chairperson so they can help you get more involved.
