Expired: Volunteering/Work experience in drama clubs for children with high functioning autism

Adri Bof - The Social Skills Agency is a not-for-profit organisation based in Bristol.

Bristol

The Social Skills Agency is a not-for-profit organisation based in Bristol. We offer social skills learning programmes for young people who struggle with social communication. We specialise in supporting children and teenagers with Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) and high functioning autism (HFA).

Reading body language, understanding vocal cues and portraying emotions are skills we use in our everyday lives, but these are the skills that those on the autism spectrum find so challenging. Our programmes use drama to give these young people a chance to explore and develop their social communication in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.

The Social Skills Agency is seeking a dynamic volunteer with a passion for drama and its transformative power to join our team and support our sessions.

Autism Awareness training is provided. In exchange, you will assist with the delivery of the workshops (usually on Saturday afternoons). Candidates must be Bristol based.

Previous personal or professional connection with people on the autism spectrum is preferable, but not essencial.

Please send your CV and a covering letter stating why you would like to join our team to office@socialskillsagency.org.

 

Venue:
Tobacco Factory, Bristol

Locality: Bristol
