About

Enjoy improvisational theatre, dance, and group singing workshops with teens and young adults with autism. Just by being yourself you model social skills that are of great benefit. This is perfect for first-time volunteers. We hope that you will join us for most or all of an 8-week cycle of workshops, held on Saturday afternoons in Encinitas. You are welcome to visit a program to see if it’s a good fit for you. You don't need to have any prior experience in the performing arts, just a willingness to enjoy improvisational theatre, choreographed dance, and group singing with your peers with autism. We don't point out our volunteers once in the workshop to create a feeling of equality. Most of those we serve have Asperger's, or high functioning autism.

Workshops are on Saturday afternoons from September 15 to November 3.
Improv Theatre: 3:00-4:30 p.m.
Performing Arts: (group singing and choreographed dance) 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Join us! You are welcome to volunteer at either or both. See 'Program Info' page on website (www.pacthouse.org) for dates of upcoming workshops, Contact us at info@pacthouse.org, or 760-815-8512 for more info or to request our volunteer forms.

This is a great opportunity for you to master the performing arts, get to know some great people, and help your peers with autism learn the social and communication skills that will enable them to develop their full potential. It's also a lot of fun!
