The Global Autism Project travels to our service sites several times per year and offers many opportunities for professionals and volunteers to travel with us. We are committed to implementing sustainable, long-term systemic change and for that reason, all of our travel programs include extensive pre-departure support and communication with our partners internationally. We build local capacity to provide high-quality effective services to individuals with autism. In order to do that- we need to ensure that skills are being taught in a comprehensive, culturally responsive and meaningful way.
Clinicians, therapists (speech, OT, PT) and those with business experience are invited to travel with us through the SkillCorps program. SkillCorps team members begin their involvement with the Global Autism Project and the service partner where they'll be traveling several months before their trip. This collaboration is vital to ensure an accurate understanding of everyone's needs and a successful trip while members are abroad. SkillCorps members impart technical knowledge in their skill area to our partners and their communities. This transfer of knowledge and know-how is vital to ensure sustainability. NOTE: There is a nonrefundable $25 application fee which will be applied to your program fee, if accepted.
