ACEing Autism, a volunteer-driven non-profit organization, is looking for caring, energetic people to volunteer two hours each Sunday for 6 weeks to help us teach the game of tennis to children with autism. This is such a special opportunity to bring a smile to so many kids and form meaningful relationships with them and other volunteers.

We adhere to covid guidelines to keep our volunteers safe, including social distancing and mask-wearing. All types of volunteers are welcome-just bring your spirit, enthusiasm, patience, and kindness. This is a chance for you 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!

You can check out our website and register to volunteer at: http://aceingautism.org/volunteers/

Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect children with autism through unique tennis programs, and to develop and advance proven methods to positively impact the children, families and communities we serve.

Description

ACEing Autism was founded in 2008 by Richard Spurling and Dr. Shafali Jeste in Boston, MA, where the first location at The Longfellow Club was launched in Wayland MA with 15 children with autism. Since 2008, ACEing autism has grown into a vibrant volunteer organization across American, and currently serves over 1,000 youth and adults through our 63 program locations in 25 states and 3 countries.

ACEing Autism is a 501c3 non profit organization that makes tennis accessible for children with autism through specially designed tennis clinics that use tennis as a means to enhance health and fitness, hand-eye coordination, motor development, and improved social skills. Participants are paired one-on-one with a youth volunteer, and participate in 6-8 week sessions in a group setting.
