Volunteer at a Southern California Event

Connect with the Community

We are extremely grateful to the hundreds of volunteers that dedicate their time to make positive contributions to our community. Event volunteers serve on an “event-by-event” basis and can serve in leadership and support roles, supporting events including family events, galas, and more.


“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”

Autism Youth Ambassadors (AYA)

This program was founded with a few basic principles: to spread autism awareness, promote acceptance and inclusion, help with fundraising efforts to support individuals and families affected by autism, and promote volunteerism in their school.


“Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud.”

- Helen Dyer
