Autism Serves Kids Care Club

What is the Autism Serves Kids Care Club: Kids Care Clubs are groups of young people who volunteer together to help others in their communities and around the world. The Autism Serves Kids Care Club of Clark County is a fun, inclusive and autism-friendly volunteering club for kids on the autism spectrum of all abilities as well as their siblings and peer mentors. Our first club meeting was in October 2015 and we’re now in our third season: September 2017 – June 2018.

As part of a network of generationOn’s Kids Care Clubs, we are connected with other youth volunteering clubs throughout the globe. We offer monthly service projects that will be worked on or completed at monthly meetings which will usually be held the 2nd Sunday of each month from 2 – 4 PM. We also offer optional volunteer opportunities that kids and families can work on at home or in the community throughout each month.

Everybody has gifts to give and that including serving others. Volunteering helps lead to better health, a better sense of self-worth and helps build communication and leadership skills.  Club members will learn new skills, make new friends and earn rewards and recognition. Together, we are stronger!

Our monthly volunteer projects will tie in with either one or two monthly themes, one of which parallels Kids Care Clubs worldwide. Members are taught and encouraged to use reflection, demonstration and evaluation activities after the completion of projects. Curriculum will be adapted to support youth on the autism spectrum so that members of all abilities each have a chance to participate.

The picture you see below was taken at our first meeting on Sunday, October 11th, 2015 where club members worked on volunteer activities related to Peace & Kindness and Bullying Prevention.

For each season, sign-ups will be limited to the first 30 youth participants ages 7 – 18. (Parents, teenagers and other adults will also be volunteering, however they are not included in these numbers.)
