Co-Founder/Board Member/Youth Mentor/Lecturer
I am one of the founders of a youth mentor group which specializes in providing support for children with autism spectrum disorder. The organization started as an autism socialization group for youth who would not otherwise receive peer focused care. Our scope has grown to include educational seminars for local social and mental health services on how to give appropriate treatment for youth within the autistic spectrum. In addition, I am in the process of creating a web site for the group and starting fundraising.
