Working toward a world where autistic people no longer face barriers to living their best quality of life, Autism Nova Scotia advocates for the autistic community across all levels of government. We act as leaders in educating and training employers, organizations, and institutions in accepting and accommodating autistic individuals in all areas of society.
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
