“The environment is incredible. You get to work with really cool office staff, and then also go to events and work with the children and families which is really rewarding. You get to experience both the planning and fundraising as well as the event side of things which is a great experience. ”

“I loved interacting with the kids. It was very intimidating at first. I really got thrown into it, but autistic children are some of the most loving and supporting children alive. It was so rewarding to help organize events like beach days, trips to the baseball game, and private airport tours. The families are so grateful for the work we do at ATPF and I'm wildly proud to be associated with the foundation. ”
