Our Central West region community is a volunteer-driven community leader in creating opportunities for children, youth, and adults with ASD to ensure the highest quality of life through providing supported events/programs, promoting autism acceptance, and advocating on behalf of families.
We are looking for volunteers to help support these amazing programs/initiatives:
COMMITTEES - ongoing and ad hoc committees that meet during the year, including fundraising, events planning for children and adults, and advocacy and outreach.
EVENTS/PROGRAMS - annual, monthly or weekly programs and events which require volunteers for registration, facilitation, activity supervision, or setup/takedown of event.

Volunteers with Autism Ontario are provided with flexible options to fit their post-secondary schedules.
Dusk Dances requires volunteers for all performances and dress rehearsal.
Join us for this magical outdoor dance experience.
Volunteers are encouraged to join us for a minimum of two (2) performance dates in the evenings, and as many volunteers as possible the dress rehearsal (daytime) and orientation (July 17th from 7-8pm at HCA - 126 James Street South).
What will I do? It depends! There are three (3) types of volunteers:
- Production Volunteers work behind-the-scenes. They help to set everything up (banners, signs, equipment, props, programs, etc.) and take it all down again when the performance finishes. They watch over and secure all the dance sites and the dressing room(s).
- Front of House Volunteers interact with the audience - they are the ‘face’ of the festival. They hand out programs and surveys, answer questions, collect money, and more. Some volunteers are stationed at the information table, but most travel with the audience from site to site. In some locations, volunteers also make and sell popcorn. At the end of the night, Front of House volunteers relieve production volunteers and help to put everything away.
- Floater Volunteers fill in for people who are away and help out wherever they are needed most during the performance. They might do any - or all - of the above.
Why should I volunteer with Dusk Dances?
- I enjoy spending time outdoors and interacting with people of all ages.
- I want to support a beautiful and accessible community-oriented event.
- I love dance, and I want to help bring dance to a broader audience.
- I had such a great time volunteering with Dusk Dances in the past!
