AUTISM AWARENESS FESTIVAL
OFFICE TASKS & POSITIONS
This festival is a chance for the community to come together as one, and for families with special needs to make connections they might not be able to otherwise.

Before each Parents' Night Out, there is a mandatory meeting for volunteers at 5:00 pm, including a provided dinner, for instructions specific to each child or station. Registration is required.
