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 in the activities. 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.
The two programs we are currently looking for volunteers for are:
I Can Swim Saturdays 4-6:15 April 21st-June 23rdat Juan Du Fuca Rec Centre
I Can Play Sports and Be Active Saturdays 1:15-4 April 21st – June 2nd at Royal Oak Middle School
We also have community and family events throughout the year for those students looking for volunteer opportunities that are smaller time commitments.
