Awareness. Acceptance. Action.

The Autism Mentorship Program (A.M.P.) pairs local youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and trained post-secondary student-athletes to foster a safe, inclusive and productive environment that promotes the child's social, cognitive, and motor skill development.

Get Involved

The success of the Autism Mentorship Program relies on the active involvement of parents, guardians, and families of children with ASD, student-athlete volunteers, and educational institutions.

Whether you're the parent or guardian of a child with ASD or a post-secondary student-athlete, A.M.P. is the program for you!

How A.M.P. Works

ASD can present itself in many different ways. Some of our program participants may experience difficulties in various aspects of their lives.

Our trained student-athlete volunteers have the capacity to alleviate some of the challenges that can be associated with ASD.

The connections between our program participants and our student-athlete volunteers promote asset-based community development that provides:

  • Student-athletes with a volunteer opportunity to become ASD ambassadors within the community.

  • Participants and their families with safe, reliable, and invested mentors.

We aim to develop mutually beneficial connections that promote inclusive and accessible communities.
