The Global Autism Project is an incredible organization in support of acceptance, education, and increasing access to services for people impacted by autism around the world. The organization is forward thinking and responsive to the needs of our partners. The Global Autism Project is an amazing organization, filled with passionate, giving, and caring people.
A truly special organization supporting meaningful/sustainable change for those impacted by autism around the world!
Traveling to India with Skillcorps was an experience I will always remember. It helped to shape my world view by teaching me how to collaborate with cultures that differ from my own, and by showing me that while our cultures vary, we still have so much in common. We all want our so deserving children to reach their full potential and it was an absolute privilege to work towards that goal with my team and the school we partnered with.
Now with the pandemic, we have the opportunity to come together once again through the Covid-19 Relief Fund and assure that our partner schools remain open to continue providing therapeutic services for families. Truly an amazing philanthropic organization that upholds values of sustainability and collaboration.
The opportunity to volunteer with the Global Autism Project has forever changed my life. The friendships made will last a lifetime not to mention the clinical skills gained from this experience. Skills that translate to all aspects of my life. This will always be my top organization.
I am so blessed that I got to travel on two SkillCorps Trips in 2014 and 2016 to Peru and The Dominican Republic. I look forward to being able to resume traveling once The Global Autism Project Office reopens.
I started volunteering at The Global Autism Project in 2010 and have enjoyed working as the database and spreadsheets manager. I am an adult with autism who works at the Project and feels that this gives me a learning experience of what it is like in a professional workplace. I am lucky that I get to travel with The Global Autism Project to increase autism awareness. I have always enjoyed meeting people who work with The Global Autism Project because they work efficiently with me and are kind and patient.
I was able to learn and experience so much through the partner site I visited. The collaboration between partners and teams is phenomenal and I love how the focus is always on what the partners need.
By partnering with us, thay changed our life and our kids lives. They work with us, not for us.
Best organization ever, we partnered with them few months ago, and they are doing an amazing job helping us to help our kids. What can i talk about? Their strategy of (do it with, not for)? Or the sustainability of their approach? The Quality of their work? The global movement they are creating?
We are in love with these people and their model of operations.
Amazing organization dedicated to ensuring every individual with autism is given the chance to learn - no matter where they live. Very inspirational team!
The Skillscorps experience changed my life and my perception about really helping others. The idea of "Do With; Not For" had a huge impact on the way I practice professionally and how I interact with clients generally since my trip to India in 2019. The Global Autism Project's model of sustainability ensures that every donation has a lasting impact and leaves centers around the world empowered to help their clientele. An absolute must experience for anyone in this field!

I was fortunate enough to travel with this amazing organization to the Netherlands in October of 2019 and it has permanently made an impact on how I view sustainable work and global education. I was challenged to step out of my comfort zone professionally and personally by completing fund raising campaigns and by travelling out of the country with people that I just met. I was challenged to be more present and mindful, to think about problem solving in new and different ways, and to be flexible and open to change.
Do with not for is the Global Autism Project's mission. Teaching communities to support themselves sustainably instead of relying on others is the goal. Working with our partner schools to teach their communities sustainable goals and end the global stigma surrounding autism is crucial for growth.
If you crave to make a difference in today's world, love meeting new people, and are up for some adventure this is the nonprofit for you!
Mickaboo's mission is to rescue any bird: abandoned or sick. They also go above and beyond to help people find lost birds and assist in returning them to their homes. They work hard to educate the public about burden care and adoption versus purchasing from breeders and pet stores which is crucial to their mission of finding every bird a home.
I began volunteering with the organization in 2016. I have traveled 6 times to their partnership sites in the Dominican Republic (3x at 2 different centers), the Netherlands (2x), and the Czech Republic. While the purpose of this organization is to help others around the world by disseminating ABA, I have gained as much as I have given. By that, I mean that I have seen a marked improvement in myself in the following ways: clinical skills, programming, leadership, and communication with clients and their families. I highly recommend this organization to anyone interested in sustainable practices and the dissemination of ABA.
I’ve volunteered with the Global Autism project three times. This is a fantastic organization that creates sustainable change throughout the world. By focusing services towards training clinicians and engaging in community outreach, the Global Autism Project is able to improve the educational services for individuals with autism for years to come. This experience has helped me grow personally and professionally. With each trip, I feel as if I learned more about my field in 2 weeks than in a year back home. At first it became an annual trip that renewed my spirt and reaffirmed my commitment to the field. Now I am traveling twice a year and feel fantastic!
An amazing organization that understands what it means to work with the people for the people . So proud to have worked alongside some brilliant change makers !
Global Autism Project has a clear and sustainable vision. It’s goal is to empower teachers and staff around that world that work with kids with autism. I traveled with Skillcorps twice and both times I grew as a person and felt so amazing to have been able to volunteer my time!
Global Autism Project has challenged me to support my passion for dissemination of ABA and sustainability with meaningful action.
Changing the world one partner site at a time! Everyone at this organization and each of their volunteers are committed to respecting the dignity and autonomy of their partners and ensuring they “do with, not for”. Volunteering here was a challenging and life-changing experience.
I travelled as a Skillcorps member with Global Autism Project in July of 2019. This organization has continued to work towards curating meaningful trainings for partner sites around the world, and increasing cultural competence for current providers for individuals with autism. I had a great experience in Kenya and truly feel this organization’s commitment to sustainable support for ABA centers around the world has allowed this organization’s partnerships to be so successful!
This organization is doing great things and supporting kids with autism around the world! Their employees and volunteer truly care about the children and staff they work with!
Digs deep into sustainability and collaborating with the autism professionals that WANT help. Wonderful experience.
This organization changed my outlook on the world and made me a better person and clinician. I am forever grateful to be a part of this mission.
As a donor to the Global Autism Project I have to say that I am so excited about the enthusiasm and commitment of the Global Autism Project staff. I also truly love the way that the volunteers who travel with SkillCorps find such value in their trips around the world. Giving of their time and talents by training staff members at centers far and wide to further the vision of Global Autism Project and, through that, touching the lives of so many individuals therefore impacting the world in ways that will show for generations to come!
“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” ~ Dalai Lama.
I joined the Global Autism Project to help make a difference. What I didn't know was that I would be joining a movement of change-makers working to create sustainable change in the world. I wasn’t aware of the magnitude of dedication and skill already existing at our partner sites. The Global Autism Project works to empower the local experts and always strives to maintain a sustainable model. Becoming involved has changed my life!
I traveled with Global Autism Project this summer, to Nanjing China. Not only was the experience transformative, affirming, and restorative for myself and my career, I was blown away by the organization's commitment to its message. The GAP truly practices sustainability in its interventions, fully committing to raising up the service providers it partners with in countries across the globe - doing with, not for!
My wife and I have been donors since 2017. Our daughter started as a volunteer, going to India, and has become an employee of Global Autism Project. Through her involvement in this organization we have watched her grow professionally and personally. Because of her affiliation with Global Autism Project we have learned so much about autism, how autism is dealt with in other countries and the valuable lessons that are learned by both the partner organizations and the volunteers and leaders. We think that anyone who is considering becoming a volunteer should take the journey and enjoy this life changing opportunity.
Global Autism Project’s model of sustainable staff consultation abroad is setting the standard of how international volunteer work should be always.
SkillCorps helped me learn more about Autism on a global scale and made we want to continue to raise awareness about #DoWithNotFor
I traveled with the Global Autism Project in 2019 to Kenya and had a wonderful experience! This is an organization that has its values in the right place. There is a tremendous focus on working "with not for" partner sites and on creating sustainable change driven primarily from the people at the partner site. I am excited to continue to be a part of this incredible organization!
I traveled with Global Autism Project in 2014 and am traveling again next summer! When I went to Peru we worked with a center there and provided staff training and support across a two week period. Unlike other organizations which do work for their partners, we worked with the center in Peru and asked the staff to tell us about what they needed support around. We then provided training in those areas. We also did outreach to parents and families to help build awareness and inclusion for people with Autism. I can’t say enough about the incredible work this organization does to empower local communities and create sustainable change. I highly recommend traveling, volunteering, and supporting this organization!
My first experience with the Global Autism Project was in 2017 when I traveled to India with SkillCorps. I never could have imagined the impact that a 2 week trip would have on my life. I quickly learned SkillCorps is more than a two-week trip, it's about activating lasting change in communities across the globe!
One of the things that makes the Global Autism Project stand out most is that the organization focuses on #DoWithNotFor. All of the international partners that are working with the Global Autism Project have applied to become a partner. The Global Autism Project does not seek out partnerships and never goes where they are not wanted. The SkillCorps program focuses on engaging with an empowering international partners through hands-on training using the resources that the partner sites have available to them. Having the chance to meet multiple international partners has shown me that this model works, and that the partners are just as enthusiastic about working with the Global Autism Project as I was.
Through my experiences with the Global Autism Project I have been pushed out of my comfort zone, and grown exponentially both professionally and personally. I feel that all professionals in the field of Autism Education should experience working with this organization at least once in their life!
Many years ago I had a dream to bring skilled professionals to communities that needed to build their ability to support those with special needs and find a sustainable way to help the local people expand their capacity to spread awareness, acceptance and quality educational opportunities. I found the Global Autism Project less than a year ago and they are making that dream a reality. Beyond that, my experience with this amazing group of people has helped me to grow as an individual and a professional in more ways than I could have imagined in such a short time. They have become a family of like-minded individuals who support each other and all of their partners around the world to continue to grow and develop.
I have had an amazing experience with the global autism project!!! This past July I traveled with them to Nanchang China to train teachers of students with autism For two weeks. This was the first volunteer trip I had ever been on because I was wary of other organizations that do not provide sustainable community driven support. This organization is going about helping with a “teach a man to fish” philosophy, Truly bettering each community that it supports.
I have volunteered with Global Autism Project and enjoyed seeing the change they are facilating with people around the world! Their mission of sustainable change end empowering locals to build the systems that they know their community needs is effectively changing the lives of people affected by autism and developmental disabilities around the world.
I am a part of the Global Autism Project & believe in the mission to promote acceptance & integration of people with autism worldwide because I see the value it provides autistic communities. When our international partners feel empowered & I see the staff spending their lives pouring into children who are now building on their own skills/values and having relationships because of new available opportunities - I feel as though the fruit of the work is present and growing. I personally have experienced the effects afterwards, coming back to the US, when families in my own workplace can now connect with me in a more intentional way because my training has given me a sustainable and global mindset where I can appreciate differences more than systems and boundaries.
I first traveled with Global Autism Project in June of 2016 and have now traveled on 4 trips and have more in the works. Their focus on sustainability and empowerment of local communities is so incredibly powerful.
I had such an amazing experience with the Global Autism Project. I have meet so many great people and they do amazing work around the world. I'm grateful to have worked and continue to work with the Global Autism Project.
I traveled with the Global Autism Project as a member of Skillcorps in July 2018 to a partner site in Uganda. This organization is built on strong values that promote collaboration, on-going support, and sustainable evidence-based practices for individuals with autism and developmental disabilities around the world. I recently attended leadership academy, which is just one professional development offered to vision and mission oriented professionals among many others, and couldn't feel more prepared as a leader. I highly recommend getting involved to create a world where all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential!
I’ve worked at the Global Autism Project since June of 2018, and I don’t think I’ve worked for an organization that understands what life with autism really is all about. As one of their autistic workers myself, I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised to be around people who genuinely do recognize that high-functioning autistic people like me have 99 problems and autism is just one. Thus, I’ve worked towards creating a self-advocacy training course for autistic people around the world. I am also working on a book called The Writer’s Guide to Autism.
I traveled with the organization to India in February 2018. I am blown away by their ability to create sustainable change for children with disabilities around the world. The experience is one I will never forget. I recently attended their leadership academy and am so excited to stay involved with the project. The trip and the organization continues to have an amazing impact on my life professionally and personally.
The Global Autism Project Is providing unique opportunities for individuals around the world to recieve sustainable training and help their community of people with autism reach their highest potiential! The organization continues to grow because WE believe everyone deserves a chance to be their best selves!
If you ever have doubts of the goodness of people, you need to travel and get to know this amazing non-profit. Passionate people, actual changes, and good hearts. Global autism project has a special place in my heart.
I always wanted to travel the world and create meaningful changes using the skills i learned and the science i love, Global Autism Project gave me exactly that! as i traveled with them to Nairobi, Kenya last august.
Being an international student living in a foreign country, i am very particular and careful when dealing with people from different backgrounds and cultures. i don't ever want to impose my views, ideas and what i "think is right" to those who do not share mine. Thankfully, this organization shares that and i felt it first hand. we did not go there with a plan to duplicate a pre-selected model. Instead, we observed and worked with what is there already to improve it. it was challenging, exciting, rewarding and a great learning process for everyone involved.
From my short experience with this organization, i can confidently say that creating a sustainable change is possible and is very much beautiful to see! Thank you Global Autism Project for the coolest, most rewarding, adventurous trip so far!
I traveled to Indonesia with the Global Autism Project in July 2017, and the experience was nothing short of incredible. I worked closely with other professionals and with the amazing women who work at the center in Jakarta. This organization works tirelessly to educate the world and improve the lives of individuals with autism everywhere! Sustainable practice ensures that the work this organization does throughout the world is maintained and carried on with Independence in partner sites. It has been a privilege volunteering , and I am looking forward to my next trip with the Global Autism Project.
I had such an amazing experience with the Global Autism Project. Collaborating with autism professionals worldwide through my trip to Nicaragua was incredible and was beneficial to all partners involved! I highly recommend getting involved in this organization!
My journey with global autism project began October of 2015. Since then I have been to three different countries, met people that have become concrete parts of my life, experienced soul changing events and strive to see the success and importance of this work spread everywhere. It is so important and since being apart of this organisation my life has truly been impacted in the best way!
After spending time in Kenya collaborating with other skillcorps members and the staff at Kaizora I have returned thrilled to be planning my second trip with Global Autism Project! The way they help disseminate ABA world wide and empower those who are spreading autism acceptance within their country is amazing. There is no way that I can see myself stepping away from an organization that is doing so much great things globally.
My trip to Kenya with the Global Autism Project was a life changing experience. The dedicated volunteers and staff of Global Autism Project are doing amazing work all around the globe. I am proud to be a member of their extended family!
I traveled to Kenya this past year with the Global Autism Project and was forever changed!
The work and energy that goes in to create and promote autism awareness around the world is truly incredible. Not only are we able to spread the word, we're able to create sustainable change that influences the lives of many. So fortunate to be apart of an organization doing so much good for communities around the world!
The Global Autism Project has their heart in the right place. They are doing really great work with the help of a huge volunteer base which is comprised of highly skilled professionals and people who have the same idea. Their focus is their client and the different needs they may have. I am a donor and volunteer and happy to be. The great thing is you don't have to travel to be a supporter. There are many roles you can play to be involved. Join the movement for better opportunities for all - in your own way!
I travelled with the Global Autism Project to Indonesia and have donated to many charities in the past. The Global Autism Project stands out from all of these in one major aspect: their aim towards sustainability and how it's all about helping the partner site reach independence. Partners are taught the tools and procedures so they can then have unlimited impact on local services. Volunteering with the Global Autism Project is also an enlightening experience for anyone who wants to collaborate with other, diverse professionals towards a common goal - helping the autism community globally!
I traveled to India with this organization and I learned more about myself both personally and professionally than I ever thought I would. It was an amazing experience. The trip leaders really contributed to us getting the most out of the trip, it wouldn't have been the same without them. I can't wait to go again
I have just returned back from my third trip with Global Autism Project and I'm already planning my fourth trip. I have travelled to Indonesia in March 2015, Prague in March 2017 and then returned to Prague in Aug 2017.
What keeps me coming back to this organization and donating my time is seeing their mission of building local capacity come to fruition across the globe. I absolutely love the sustainable partnerships that they create with each site to have long lasting impact. Among so many other things, this is what has truly kept me engaged with this organization and wanting to do more.
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!
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.
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 worked with the Global Autism Project, since the early days and am continuously impressed by their commitment to quality and sustainability - they've truly raised the bar. Everywhere they've worked - services have improved for children with autism and continue to improve!
I find the concept of this nonprofit very beneficial for people across many countries. It's an organization that Keeps growing and continues the education for what they do. I hope a lot of people not only learn about this nonprofit, but share what they do, volunteer, and contribute it any way to make this huge!
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.
