Congratulations graduates! You’re likely traveling the world, preparing to start your first job and/or gearing up for graduate school. Whatever your post-graduate plans are, you can continue to stay involved with our college program, Autism Speaks U, and Autism Speaks!

Here are five easy ways that you can stay involved and make a difference:


  1. Continue to support your campus’ efforts with Autism Speaks U. Stay connected to the campus' chapter leaders and event organizers. You can support your alma mater’s efforts by attending their Autism Speaks U events, contributing to their fundraising efforts and/or asking your employer to sponsor their events.

  2. Participate in a Walk Now for Autism Speaks event!  Volunteer, join a Walk Now for Autism Speaks Committee, start a team with other alumni, or help distribute materials to the local community! Click here to find a walk near you.

  3. Join or establish an Autism Speaks to Young Professional (AS2YP) group. Work with the local Autism Speaks staff to join and/or create an AS2YP Committee and put on events for rising executives and professionals ages 21-40. We currently have groups in Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C. and NYC!
