We run highly supported sports and recreation activities for children, teens and young adults with autism. It is a great opportunity for students to see how different each of our participants on the autism spectrum are and the support strategies we use. Volunteer roles include: set up/take down of equipment, support using visuals, support staff with participants and enthusiastic participants. We have online training that teaches about Autism Spectrum Disorder and we also have an onsite supervisor at every session to help with hands on learning. Moreover, our programs are really fun and interactive and take place outside of school hours. We have the following positions open in Victoria:
I Can Swim Saturdays 4-5:45, September 29th to November 24th at Juan Du Fuca Recreation Centre
I Can Play Sports and Be Active Saturdays 1:15-3, October 10th to November 28th at Royal Oak Middle School
I Can Skate 4:30-5:30, September 29th to December 8th at Juan Du Fuca Recreation Centre
