Volunteer/Intern Info

Thank you for your interest in OASIS NC!  Due to the large volume of requests we receive for volunteer opportunities, we now require our center-based volunteers to:

  • Be experienced/educated in the areas of Autism, Special Education, Elementary Education, ¬†or pursuing degrees in those areas or a related field.
  • Commit to a consistent, weekly schedule for the entire school year (or the remainder of it).
  • Plan their own activities that must be approved in advance by the director or program coordinator.

There are a variety of other volunteer opportunities for you to make a difference at our center for children with autism! These include, but are not limited to:


Grant Writing

Social Media


Art/Music Therapy

Dance Instructor

P.E./Yoga Instructor

* Please complete an Application and send resume and an email that includes your experience, date/time availability, and reason for wanting to volunteer to: Erika.merriman@oasisnc.org.  
**We graciously as that you please DO NOT CALL.  We will call you if we see that all the requirements have been met or if we have any questions.  We get multiple requests for volunteers, practicums, and senior projects.  Unfortunately, we are a small center and can only select  a small number of those applicants to volunteer that are most experienced and passionate.  We will contact those applicants to schedule an interview.
