Have you been in the workforce for years and would like to try something different?
Are you a Psychology or Social work student eager to gain some hands-on experience?
Are you a parent who has a bit of extra time on your hands while your child is at school?
Are you someone with extensive special education background?
Have you just recently heard about autism, or simply want to learn about autism, or autism in India?
No matter what your background, if you have an open mind and think you might like to Volunteer with AFA we would be very glad to have you!
We have a long history of working with people from a wide range of disciplines from across the world. At any given time, there are volunteers from across India and other countries assisting in directly working with children with autism and/or opting to volunteer in the office, library, or the research wing. Yet others offer to raise funds, or help during events. Some are parents of children who access services at AFA; others are people willing to share their time and skills. Our aim is to always integrate our volunteers into the organization so that the experience is beneficial to both you and us.
We consider you an integral part of what we do, and we cherish the relationship our children and we have with you.
Volunteering with AFA can consist of a commitment of a few hours a week on specific projects, or it may be on a full-time basis for a pre-arranged period. The duration of your work with AFA may vary depending on your objectives. With the exception of working on specific projects, we find that a minimum commitment of three months in the organisation is useful to learn about the children, the cause, and AFA and to ensure that the time we put in helping you get familiarized with the same is also well spent.
You can read more about the Volunteering Opportunities at AFA to choose the option that works best for you and send us a copy of the Volunteer Application Form along with a copy of your CV/resume.
Please visit us to see the work we do. We will really appreciate it if you call in before, so we can plan for your visit and ensure that your time is well spent.
