We are so glad you are interested in volunteering with The Summit Centre for Preschool Children with Autism.
The following information will allow you to make an educated decision on how you could help at The Summit Centre.
All The Summit Centre volunteers need a police clearance (less than one year old) and three letters of reference. Two letters must be from professors, professionals, parents you have worked for in-home, etc, and one may be personal, so you may want to start on those right away. Please also note that our volunteers sign a statement that they are not the subject of a pending police investigation.
To help us let you know if we have a volunteer opportunity that would match your needs, please e-mail us with:
2) your full name
3) your weekly availability
4) length of time you will volunteer
5) contact telephone number
6) if there is a specific task you are interested in doing
Areas in which volunteers are needed: Lunch monitor, break monitor, parent group child care, cleaning, maintaining toys, centre beautification, craft and circle preparation, structured break, program preparation, administration help, sibling group, reverse integration, video help, literary review.
The Volunteer Coordinator will get back to you with more information.
