Mission:

To build local capacity to provide services to individuals with autism in under-served communities worldwide, and to address the lack of resources and extremely limited understanding of autism that plagues many under-served populations, we partner with autism centers established by local individuals. Our community empowerment model supports systemic change by providing family and community education through workshops and hands-on training. We believe in embracing the talent and resources of the communities we serve by furnishing them with tools that engender self-reliance, sustainable development, and continued innovation. Through this comprehensive, bottom-up approach, it is our vision to build a world in which all individuals affected by autism have access to effective services.

I've watched this organization grow over the years. The work they do is simply amazing and the lives they touch simply have no words. I donate to a lot of organizations but the transparency and what they get done a shoe string budget is far above most.

I traveled with Global Autism Project to Indonesia, in May 2015. They are an incredible organization, providing quality services to individuals on the autism spectrum all over the world. I continue to be impressed by their work daily, and hope to travel with them again in the future. I'm currently a founding Compass member and proud to be a part of their mission!

Global Autism Project is an amazing nonprofit!! They are focused on providing support for those working with children with autism all over the world. The goal is training in evidence based practices in a way that is sustainable for the practitioners all of the time, not just during visits or the ongoing supervision times.

I was so excited to go on the Skillscorp trip and travel across the world spreading knowledge about ABA. An amazing trip and I can't wait to go back!

I've been a supporter of the global autism project since its inception and am so impressed with how the organization has grown into a sustainable and efficient partnership between BCBA professionals and the organizations abroad that they support.

As a retired educator,with over thirty years in the classroom,I have taught many children from many different backgrounds. However,I had very little experience with children with autism,but was aware that our programs in the United States were impressive. When my youngest daughter began working with special education, I learned about Global Autism Project, as she chose to volunteer for an overseas adventure. She was so excited about the work they did to improve learning,life skills and the general attitude toward people with special needs. Things are simply not the same in other countries; and the Global Autism Project is helping to make some dramatic changes for some really special people. They believe that all children deserve the chance to learn and I believe they are making this happen.

Traveling with an amazing and collaborative Skill Corp Team with a strong courageous leader has been the highlight of my 15+ year career working with children with Autism. The vision and the mission of the organization is not just a string of words, it is a way of life and it is lived and implemented across boarders.

Attention to detail, organization, and an emphasis on team work contribute to making SkillCorp trips to productive, effective, and allow team members to leave as though they have greatly contributed to the mission of the Global Autism Project. It has been an honor and a pleasure to volunteer for this amazing organization.

The SkillCorp trips are an amazing experience that is truly life-changing. The teams are carefully crafted to bring a wide range of skill level together for a common goal. The trip leaders are well traveled and knowledgeable of the different centers. The travel experience was wonderful, accommodations are what to expect with a nonprofit. The people were great, I learned a lot and have life long friends. The fundraising was not easy, 5,000 is a lot of money. I felt there could have been more support during the fundraising process. I would go on another trip and have recommended this organization to friends!
