ACEing Autism is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization. We are looking for caring, energetic people to volunteer two hours each week to give back to their community and help us teach the game of tennis to children with autism.

All types of volunteers are welcome, from local high school and college teams, tennis enthusiasts, special education teachers, ABA therapists, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists to name a few. It is a chance for you as a volunteer to gain valuable experience helping children on the autism spectrum improve their social skills and physical fitness. Knowing how to play tennis is not a prerequisite to volunteering!
