DO YOU WORK WITH INDIVIDUALS WITH AUTISM?
WANT TO BUILD FRIENDSHIPS AROUND THE WORLD?
WANT TO GAIN A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE?
DO YOU BELIEVE EVERY CHILD CAN LEARN?
READY TO COLLABORATE IN A MEANINGFUL WAY?
YOUR ADVENTURE IS WAITING.
JOIN SKILLCORPS!
SKILLCORPS IS MORE THAN A 2 WEEK TRIP. 
IT'S A MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE.






Are you ready?
 
SkillCorps is an innovative volunteer travel program designed to promote, collaboration, communication, and cultural consideration within the field of autism education.

As a SkillCorps member, you will train teachers in other countries to teach kids with autism, educating them in evidence based teaching methods. By training them, you empower local teachers to become the experts in their community. 
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
ARE YOU SKILLED?
Do you have a professional background in autism education? Whether you're a classroom teacher, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, SLP or a related service provider -- we want you! We recruit professionally diverse teams who have experience working with individuals with autism. 
ARE YOU CURIOUS?
Are you wondering what autism services look like in other countries? Do you want to get out of your current network and collaborate with professionals from other backgrounds, experiences and cultures? We're looking for volunteers who are ready to learn, grow and contribute to this unique experience! 
ARE YOU PASSIONATE?
Do you believe that anyone can learn? Do you believe in the potential of every child? Are you passionate about your field? We want you for SkillCorps! This program is designed to bring passionate leaders, followers, advocates and visionaries together with one common goal -- global acceptance of autism!
WHO WILL YOU WORK WITH?
LOCAL EXPERTS.
SkillCorps teams travel to our International Partner Sites to work with local educators! We believe local teachers are the most qualified professionals in their country -- not us.
LOCAL CAPACITY.
We focus on building local capacity, not our presence. SkillCorps is a model for training which ensures our partners are empowered and learn to solve their own challenges. 
LASTING CHANGE.
When local professionals can stand as experts in their own country, dissemenation can truly sustain! SkillCorps volunteers empower advocates across the globe to model change in their own communities.
WHAT HAPPENS ON A SKILLCORPS TRIP?
Meet the Teams!
Your journey will begin at the Global Autism Project headquarters in NYC! Meet SkillCorps members traveling all over the world to train teachers and change the world.
Train Teachers!
When you arrive at the partner site, you will spend your first day observing and planning before diving into two weeks of hands-on training. You'll then work with your team to develop a culturally relevant training for the next two weeks at the site!
Explore the Country!
SkillCorps is all about collaborating and exchanging skills across borders and cultures. It's also all about exploring new places, experiences, and backgrounds! During the weekend between work days, we go on a team excursion!
Collaborate and Share!
After your 2 weeks of training and your excursion, you'll spend your final days working on goals and writing new targets to support the teachers in the partner site. You then fly home with your team!
HOW WILL YOU GET THERE?
SHARING THE MOVEMENT!
As SkillCorps volunteers, we represent a unique network of advocates for the global autistic community. We believe that every person with autism should be accepted by their community. To encourage others to join our mission, we start with fundraising!

Each SkillCorps volunteer will have the opportunity to raise money for the Global Autism Project. 

 

A fundraising minimum of $5000 is required for each team member. We call it a minimum because we’ve had many volunteers raise even more!

This is your opportunity to spread the word about the amazing work you are doing, raise awareness for autism internationally, and open a dialogue about sustainable development!

WHEN'S THE NEXT TRIP?
WE TRAVEL AT LEAST 3 TIMES PER YEAR!
Our next teams leave on:
 
OCT. 25 - NOV. 14, 2017
FEB. 21 - MAR. 11, 2018

 

We will be traveling to INDONESIA, KENYA, INDIA, NIGERIA, NICARAGUA, and CZECH REPUBLIC!
