How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
What makes volunteering with us so AUSOME are the unique relationships volunteers build with our athletes so they can have fun in sport programs made for them! People volunteer with us for all kinds of reasons: to give back to the community, learn and develop skills, meet new people, fulfill school community service requirements, and more. Volunteers receive ongoing training and recognition for their continued efforts and dedication to Ausome.
How will the organization benefit?
Ausome Volunteers are the bridge that help our athletes and families participate in accessible sports programs. Our sports programs would not be able to operate without our engaged, brilliant volunteers who give their time and energy to create a fun and inclusive atmosphere for our athletes!
