AS2YP Committees


Communications & Awareness: Help give AS2YP a voice in Chicago! Be a part of our event promotion, branding and awareness initiatives by supporting our digital presence and membership communications. Have a marketing or public relations mind? We want you!


Illuminate: Awareness meets fundraising with AS2YP’s annual Light It Up Blue cocktail fundraiser. The Illuminate Committee plans AS2YP’s biggest annual fundraiser—everything from special guests and silent auction to sponsorships and restaurants. It’s all in the details, and we would love you to join us in making this year’s event the most successful yet!


Membership: The Membership Committee works behind the scenes to recruit and welcome new members, as well as develop the current ones. Volunteers are golden, and one of our top priorities is to keep them coming back for more! Key events include quarterly new member socials and our annual membership meeting.


Art in the Park: Art in the Park is AS2YP's newest event! This is an Autism Speaks family friendly event for young adults of all abilities and levels. 


Revenue & Corporate Development: Fundraising isn’t all that we do within AS2YP, but it does allow us to further our mission. The Revenue & Corporate Development Committee works to secure sponsorship plan our smaller fundraising events and develop partnership relationships with donors. Key events include the Double Denim Bar Crawl and Spikes for Autism Speaks Volleyball tournament. Business savvy, social and presentation-oriented? We need you!
