Mission Statement

The mission of Community ConNext is to provide a multifaceted approach to community-wide autism inclusion, offering progressive integrated programs and applied learning experiences for individuals of all abilities.

Description

The Community ConNext program is a community-based, social behavior development and inclusion program for kids and teens diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. This program focuses on breaking down the skills involved in building reciprocal, meaningful relationships and friendships by working in a peer-rich environment in an effort to foster natural relationship building opportunities.


This program is run by an autism-specifically trained and educated, highly skilled Coaching Team led by a Team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). The Team utilizes a variety of individual evidence-based practices that focus on teaching behavior self-management strategies and supporting social skill development to help our program participants more independently navigate and be actively included in their community.

This volunteering match is an awesome opportunity to acquire experience working with the autistic community. The coaching team is very skilled and supportive to volunteers who are eager to learn about the autistic community. I believe the best part of volunteering for this organization is being part of a movement that not only has autistic youth come out of their shelter into the community, but also exposes the public to autistic individuals.

This event was for a good cause. the people were great and treated me as if I fit right into the group even though I was not a part of the large group that volunteered. I will say that, again, I knew no one and they were all kind and willing to give me tasks to work on and lead me in the right direction. I would recommend people to volunteer for this event and others that are help by this organization in the future.
