Give the Gift of Your Time and Make a Difference
We are a nonprofit organization which relies on volunteers getting involved so we can offer support and information to our member families and the general community. Please consider contributing your time and talents!
The time you give makes a difference. Below is a list of programs that we are currently looking for volunteers to help with:
iCan Shine Bike Program
Help children learn to ride a two-wheeler. Each summer, the Autism Society SE WI sponsors iCan Shine bike programs in our area. This is a five-day program that teaches children with developmental disabilities to ride a two-wheel bike. We need volunteers who can run alongside the campers on their bikes as well as general volunteers to help with set up, check in, etc.
This is a great service project for High School students if you can commit to a two-hour slot for five consecutive days. It is great exercise and very rewarding! We are planning on Bike Camp for 2021 pending the COVID-19 Pandemic.
A-Team Fun Walk (formerly Dylan’s Run)
Dylan’s Run was created twenty-one years ago to build awareness about autism in the Milwaukee area and to generate dollars for autism research and outreach programs. We wanted to highlight the disability and allow families and individuals affected by autism to have an opportunity to come together and show their support for one another. With your help we continue that growth with the A-Team Fun Walk for Autism- now in it’ second year! We are excited to continue what we’ve started and the number of families needing support is growing. Your participation is an important way we can provide this support to all that are affected by autism. The day helps raise funds that in-turn help our neighbors, our schools, our public safety officers and our entire community. We host it every year and hope to continue the tradition as the largest single-day gathering to support autism in Wisconsin. We are planning our 2021 event already! If you are interested in helping at the event, please consider volunteering. We usually need help with people on-site to time the runners, assist on the course directing participants, staffing water stations and in many more areas.
Every Day Support
If you are task-oriented, enjoy interacting with others, and like working in a friendly office environment then volunteering in a clerical capacity may be a good fit for you. As an administrative volunteer, you can assist with operational responsibilities including helping with mailings, computer work, phone work, research, writing and more. Some projects can even be done in the comfort of your own home. Please consider giving the gift of your time today.
