CommunityWorks (ages 13-18)
CommunityWorks is a pre-employment program and experience designed for teens with and without autism. Through volunteer work in the community, you will develop job, social, and communication skills.
Volunteer community locations vary by season, primarily in the Greater Phoenix area. Together, all participants will have the opportunity to explore their interests and abilities in a variety of work environments while learning important skills to enhance their ability to live and work more independently.

Teen Peer Mentor Volunteer Opportunity
Diversity adds to the program, and we invite peers to participate in SARRC’s CommunityWorks program weekly. We seek peers who value and want to practice teamwork, respect, collaboration and learning. Peer Mentors also gain an understanding of neurodiversity and learn more about those who may be different from themselves. Teens will also benefit from:
- An experience that can be used in a resume or college application.
- Connecting with businesses in your community.
- Volunteer hours may be used for school requirements.
