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 the performing arts 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 Aspergers, or high functioning autism.

Improv Theatre: 2:30-4:00 p.m.
Performing Arts: (group singing and choreographed dance) 4:00-5:00 p.m.

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

This is a great opportunity for you to master the performing arts, get to know some great people, and help them to learn the social skills that will enable them to develop their full potential.
