Child Support Volunteers

Child Support Volunteers are always needed!  Volunteers work one-on-one with a child to provide a meaningful, safe and fun experience.

Training will be provided, including an Introduction to Autism course, First Aid Training and Behaviour Management Systems Training (BMST).

Each volunteer is required to present a clean Police Records Check with Vulnerable Persons Sector clearance; the cost for the Police Check will be reimbursed with proof of payment.

FOOTPRINTS Volunteers are Awesome

Child Support Volunteers provide one-on-one supervision of a child diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism provides an environment of fun and stimulation with age and skill level appropriate toys and activities.

The Program Consultant will match Child Support Volunteers with a child, based on the child’s abilities.

Volunteers supervise as the child plays and interacts with other children.
