What do you get when you put a group of passionate people together? You hear about collaboration and open communication, but it requires a lot of hard work to truly focus on the shared goal or mission. This trip to the Namaee Center for me has been such an eye-opening experience, and it’s hard to believe that it’s been just a week at the center. The staff are so dedicated and eager to learn and grow, it makes the collaboration such a fun and inspiring experience.

Arriving at the Namaee Center, I was looking forward to meeting the kids and staff, and to see how everything was structured. As we observed the staff the first day, I saw how well they connected with their kids, and how committed they are to their work. They want to see their kids succeed and look for ways to continue improving their own skills for the betterment of the center. As a Skillcorps member, I feel so grateful to be able to see the Global Autism Project mission and values being shared with the team and staff.
