Victoria Society for Children with Autism is a welcoming, innovative organization that provides assistance to families and caretakers of children with autism in the Greater Victoria Area. We work in partnership with other groups, organizations, financial supporters and volunteers in our community. If you are interested in volunteering, please use the contact tab to send us a note or email us at support@victoriaautism.com.

Volunteers will undergo a brief orientation and are bound by the same legal and ethical responsibilities as staff. The screening process includes a criminal record check and the volunteer is to provide at least two references to be checked.
