HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
1 | APPLY 

Field placement based on site compatibility and need!

Once you complete your online application, our team will be in touch! If you're a potential fit for a team, you may be invited to interview, and our SkillCorps® team will assess your experience before placing you on a team. Field placement is based on your professional background, your goals and intentions, and international partner site compatibility. You'll have the opportunity to select your top two site preferences when you apply!

2 | FUNDRAISE 

Invest in a better future for autism services globally!

When you're accepted to a team, you'll begin your SkillCorps® journey with crowdfunding and launch into your transformation through intentional sharing! Each SkillCorps® member fundraises a minimum of $5,000 before traveling to support vision of the Global Autism Project! Fundraising is an important part of your program, and we support you in discovering what's possible when you step into conversations you've never had before, and leap outside of what's comfortable.

3 | TRAVEL 

Spend two weeks collaborating, sharing, and learning at one of our partner sites!

Before you travel to one of our partner sites, you'll join 75-100 other SkillCorps® members at orientation! Orientation is a powerful two-day escalated learning experience designed to prepare you for the transformation that will happen in the field. You'll then travel as a team to your site, you'll explore new places, new possibilities, and new ways of being in life and your career.

Check out this video of one of our Kenya SkillCorps® teams in the field!

"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® Alumna
"This was such an eye-opening experience. I learned so much from my team, the teachers, the students... Exactly what I needed."
- Fabienne, SkillCorps® Alumna
"When I discovered SkillCorps, I was tired and seriously questioning our impact as a field... then finding this community who knew how to sustain their impact, and anywhere in the world-- finally, the answers I was searching for."
- Katie, SkillCorps® Alumna

WHAT HAPPENS POST-TRIP?

You come back home! But, if you're like most of our SkillCorps Alumni, you'll stay involved, travel again, and maybe go on to join our team in other ways! Once you're a SkillCorps Alum, you'll have the opportunity to step into leadership roles, travel, present, and so much more.

"We're all just teachers, therapists, clinicians... we're not fundraisers! BUT, then you realize you're not alone, we're doing this together, and we got so much incredible support -- fundraising was the learning experience I needed most."
- Sarah, SkillCorps® Alumna
"In the beginning, I thought fundraising was about paying for the trip. But it's not. Fundraising is about having real, hard conversations about what's happening in the world for kids with autism. I learned so much about myself in this."
- Bernardus, SkillCorps® Alumna
"The joy and connection I found in this experience shocked me. Even starting with fundraising... it was so uncomfortable in the beginning, and turned into something that changed me completely as a person."
- Anna, SkillCorps® Alumna
OVER FIFTEEN YEARS OF INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE

"When we do things for others, we unknowingly make assumptions about what people are capable of, and what they're not capable of. When we do with others, that conversation changes"

Global Autism Project was founded over fifteen years ago, based on the belief local leaders can and will activate change in the world.
