FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism programs exists through the generosity of so many. Our programs do not receive government funding and are sustained through community volunteers, grants, and corporate and individual donations. Your support and involvement make a difference!
FOOTPRINTS is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness. The collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent represent our culture. We are able to grow and learn better together as a diverse team and is the key to our success.
JOIN OUR VOLUNTEER TEAM
Our volunteers receive hands-on experience by providing direct in-person service delivery to children and youth. Each shift is different and provides opportunity to connect with clients, lead activities and meet other volunteers.
Extensive training is provided to expand knowledge base and develop skills. Benefits include autism education and orientation, on-going support , crisis intervention training, First Aid/CPR training and opportunities to join fun initiatives and projects. In addition, we award an education bursary to support an outstanding volunteer annually!
You must be enthusiastic and have a passion for community support, and enjoy having fun connecting with children and youth. We require a minimum of one shift per month for a one year term.

“Throughout the last 3 years, I have worked as an in-person volunteer, social media committee team member, and now co-chair of our social media team. I work with children every Saturday and strive to create genuine and long-lasting connections. I am confident that whatever my future endeavours may be, the lessons I have learned at FOOTPRINTS will be at the core of them. Thank you greatly for this opportunity and honour!”
2020 Education Bursary was not awarded in due to restricted opportunities from Covid-19.
