PEER MENTOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY
PEERS for Adults assists teens by promoting both social and personal growth for our clients with autism. It is of critical importance that our teen volunteers have the skills to both model and assist with important pivotal behaviors to our clients. This requires patience, respect, collaboration, consistency, excitement, and a mind that is open and ready to learn. While we understand things come up and schedules can change, we are looking for a strong commitment to SARRC, our clients and our program to enroll as a peer mentor. The gift that you have to offer our clients is you being you: a peer with interests and passions, things you like and things you don’t.
