"Everything I do with GAP strengthens my sense of self and makes me feel more at ease with my differences, knowing everyone has some."

As an autistic self-advocate, passionate about bringing my experience to other people, living in a highly diverse city, and finding some of my greatest joy in traveling, I’ve found no other organization that unites these special interests and the skills I have like Global Autism Project. Their commitment to autistic representation in projects as well as outreach makes them live up to their name.

FAQs
What if I've never fundraised before?

Over 90% of SkillCorps® applicants are first-time fundraisers - so you're not alone! Crowdfunding is a big piece of the program, and we provide coaching, lessons, and support every step of the way in your virtual, exclusive membership portal. There are powerful personal and professional development lessons in fundraising – like learning to get out of your own way, navigating complex conversations, or even how to ask for help when you need support. 

When do I meet my team?
You'll meet your team at orientation, which will be hosted in NYC before you travel to your site together! You'll also start connecting with members of your team (and members traveling to other sites) in the virtual program. You'll be crowdfunding together, attending group coaching together, and you'll start collaborating before you take flight!
How do I know if I'm qualified?
Do you have personal or professional experience with autism? If so, you're qualified! We recruit for diversity, and we're looking for professionals who are connected to autism and have a skill, experience, or perspective that can add valuable insight to our teams. The best first step is to fill out an application – and even if you're not a fit for our next team, we will be in communication. 
What will the daily schedule be like?
SkillCorps® is an all-inclusive journey that has been carefully curated by our team and our local hosts. The daily routine varies by site, but may include having lunch with local entrepreneurs, walking city tours with local Autistic professionals,  school visits with teachers, and more! We organize everything for you, and before you travel you'll have an itinerary to follow and get excited about!
What if I get accepted to a site I'm not comfortable traveling to?
If you're selected for a specific team, it's because our placement process determined you have something significant to contribute to that team, at that site, based on the project we're executing. However, if you're not comfortable with your site placement, simply let us know! We are always open to working with you to ensure you're excited and ready for this journey!
"This was such an eye-opening experience. I learned so much from my team, the teachers, the students... Exactly what I needed."
- Fabienne, SkillCorps® USA
"I didn't realize going into this that I would learn to become a leader. A leader in my life and my own happiness, and a leader in this field and the world! I love that about the Global Autism Project."
 - Brooke, SkillCorps® USA

"It's about knowing you're not alone. Sometimes when you're the only one doing this in your community, it's hard to keep going. SkillCorps changes that."
- Brooke, Tanzania
