This organization is truly amazing. Their staff and volunteers are wholeheartedly dedicated to making a difference world wide. I traveled with GAP to Kenya and it changed my life! I 100% support the work that they do.
A truly amazing organization to be a part of! Global Autism Project brings together an incredible group of dedicated professionals from all over the world to provide quality training and promote awareness and acceptance of autism all over the globe.
I've traveled to 3 partner sites with SkillCorps and I could not put my experiences into words. It's definitely changed my life being able to train AMAZING teachers and therapists in countries where the passion is there but the resources are not.
Amazing organization! I have been working with the GAP for a few years now. Being able to see the organization grow and blossom into an incredibly strong and sustainable resource for individuals with autism, their families, and professionals in the field around the world, is truly a blessing!
The experience to participate in a SkillCorps trip with the Global Autism Project starts before you even step foot in the office. The organization establishes personal growth as well as the growth and development of the partners we work with in country. Each aspect of the Global Autism Project pushes you in some way to reach a new potential, whether it is fund raising, experiencing a new country and language, or working to support the staff and students at the centers. This organization does something uniquely different and I knew instantly that I would be traveling with them again after my first trip. The Global Autism Project certainly focuses on promoting awareness and acceptance of autism, but it goes beyond that as well. To provide information and trainings to support the centers in providing the children with autism with best practice for therapy is on going. Your job does not end after the 2 weeks, it continues to develop and establish itself in the center and the ways in which the staff work with the students. This is quite incredible really; to know that you have not just made an impact in those 2 weeks, but to know that the work you have put in will continue to support and change the lives of the students, their families, and the staff, makes the Global Autism Project much more than just a volunteer opportunity. This is what makes it an exceptional nonprofit with the capability to make lasting change for communities around the globe.
Global Autism Project is an amazing organization that truly works to better autism service access for those around the world. Their commitment to sustainability is unmatched by any other organization in this field. GAP has amazing relationships with their partner sites, and they recognize that they learn just as much from their sites as they teach them. I feel honored to have traveled with them and am looking forward to hopefully traveling with them again in the future!
I have been volunteering with this organization for a little over a year. Their highly sustainable model, vision and mission is why I'm so in love with this organization. Truely incredible people working here and volunteering.
I was fortunate enough to travel to Jakarta Indonesia in June 2015 with this organization. The experience was truly transformative. The work that this organization is doing is so important and it is clear that they live and breathe their mission and vision everyday. The opportunity to travel with professionals who are passionate and to be a part of a movement to create change in countries that need it the most was truely life changing. What I love most about this organization is that they are committed to providing education and services that are sustainable. I am a better person and a better clinician for having been a part of the work they do and traveling with the Global Autism Project.
I started volunteering with the Global Autism Project a year ago. I have visited two partner centers and I am going to be leading my first trip this summer. The hard work and dedication of this organization is truly admirable. I am honored to be a part of such a positive and professional team.
The Global Autism Project's mission to provide support to autism centers in developing countries is only the beginning of what this organization does. By providing sustainable training and resources to centers abroad, Global Autism raises awareness, empowers individuals with autism, their families, teachers and sets the precedence for autism treatment internationally.
There are not enough words to express how the Global Autism Project has transformed my life. As a professional, I have a better understanding of how to generalize my skills, be part of a team, and be a leader. My passion was reignited and my professional goals have shifted to continuing to work abroad. On a personal level, I learned a great deal about who I am and the person I want to be. Bonds of friendship were created on a level that runs so deep I consider my team mates family. If I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would...and I will!
This is a fantastic organization that is committed to providing quality education and training for professionals working with children and adults with autism around the world. This model allows local professionals to become the experts within their community. This organization is also fantastic to work with!
The Global Autism Project is an amazing organization that continually seeks to disseminate evidence-based practices for children with autism in low-resource communities such that these teachers can go on to train other teachers. Many other organizations will focus on doing one-time trainings with no emphasis on sustainability; the Global Autism Project is a pioneer in changing these methodologies so as to maximize their global impact.
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.
