Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I have been accepted to travel to China in July of 2019 to volunteer with the Global Autism Project!! I am honored to have been chosen to participate with an organization that aims to bring awareness and sustainability around the world.
Global Autism Project is a 501c3 nonprofit that is driven by a vision of all people with autism being able to reach their full potential, no matter where in the world they live. Their model is all about sustainability, and they work to train local communities in culturally relevant and sustainable practices.
While participating in this program, I will be volunteering with a team at Huicong school in Nanchang, China. Huicong provides 1:1 instruction for over 100 students with autism. It was founded by a mother of a child with autism, and there is an urgent need for increased autism awareness and access to services n China.
Having worked with amazing individuals with autism for many years now gaining experience in many different settings, along with continuing my academic growth, I feel that I am ready to help others gain the knowledge I have been so lucky to learn. I am ready to give back!
To help make this possible, I am fundraising for the Global Autism Project and asking for your support! Thank you in advance for helping me work towards my goal!
