We will be operating out of three sites including Beaverton, Milwaukie, and East Portland (Parkrose). Maps of the different sites are located on the "Our Program" page.
The summer program entails daily trips to community activities. The position requires some physical activity: walking 1-2 or more miles each day, swimming/bowling/park activities with our clients, etc. A back-pack and swimsuit (1 piece) are required; the staff provides their own lunches and take lunch with the campers. Admission fees and Tri-Met passes are paid by ACAP.
A typical classroom group has one teacher 8-10 assistants. Assistants are paired 1:1 with campers, but camper/assistant pairings rotate daily.
What our staff says:
“As a classroom teacher, working one-on-one in a non- academic program, like ACAP’s summer program, opened my eyes to how broad the spectrum of Autism really is. I grew as a professional, I got to help a worthy nonprofit in my community, and I got paid for it too.”
