Volunteer with MICC
At MICC, we strive every day to transform the lives of individuals and families impacted by autism and learning disabilities. We believe experiencing life firsthand is the best way to gain independence. MICC is looking for individuals who share our vision and want to help support our mission by joining our volunteer team. We are excited to work with volunteers that will bring their skills and passion to our community, making a meaningful impact on the lives of MICC participants.
“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

What to Expect
We want your experience at MICC to fun and rewarding! Upon arrival you will be greeted at our Welcome Center, where we will introduce you to MICC and take you on a tour of our campus. Then you will meet the team you will be working with for the day. During this time, the project lead will provide any necessary information needed to complete the job that day. The experience is completely up to you! We offer a variety of positions for you to choose from, so that you can utilize your skills to better MICC. Whether you are just visiting for the day or looking to become invested in our community long term, we hope to build a long-lasting impactful relationship with you.
At MICC, we understand that everyone works differently. We encourage you to utilize your strengths while engaging with MICC participants, employees, and supporters. There are numerous one-time, ongoing, and short-term volunteer opportunities at MICC available to appease different skillsets, interests, and schedules.
