POW!, Power Of We!

We are an emerging nonprofit organization that provides free enrichment programs to children of all abilities, backgrounds and ages.

We currently are in search of volunteers who would love to become a 1:1 coach for participants on the spectrum.

These could be kids who are non- verbal and or use their voice and or body as a communication tool; it could be kids who know some sign language- but avoid eye contact, ....there are tons of facets.

As we focus on practical inclusion, we want to ensure that the individual you take under your wings will gradually feel more comfortable in social settings - and vice versa, our POW! community learns through you and your expertise how to approach and interact with a person on the spectrum.


We see this as a challenging position and greatly appreciate your courage and dedication to help❣️

Since the Pandemic, we respond to a noticeable need of movement amongst kids as fostering a sense of inclusion and belonging and developing social skills.

Most families are available on Saturdays, so this is our primary focus right now; comes summer it might shift to a midweek session after 4:30 PM.

This would be a long-term position.

If this sounds like something you would love to do, please join our POW! programs as a volunteer! Email to: powkids2020@gmail.com / subject: Volunteermatch - 1:1 coach

Thank you!
