YOUTH PROGRAM VOLUNTEER (adults over 18 years old)
We are always looking for dedicated volunteers from the community who are 18 or older to serve as volunteers for our Youth program. Volunteers should be able to commit to the majority of rehearsals starting June 4, 2018, and all of the performances on July 13, 14, and 15, 2018. Volunteers will have the chance to work with students with autism in one on one, small group, and large group settings while developing positive and memorable relationships. Volunteers will play alongside students in rehearsal as well as perform in the shows in small supporting roles. No theatre or education experience is necessary.
"More than 50% of all volunteers with BCT have assisted for 2 or more summers."
"BCT volunteers have experience and credentials in fields such as education, child psychology, theatre, creative writing, neurology, family services, and more."
YOUTH PROGRAM PEER ROLE MODEL (8-14 years old)
Youth peer role models participate in the same capacity as all BCT program participants from 6:00-7:30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from June 4 through July 12. Students will participate in warm ups, theatre games, role play sessions, writing workshops, and final performances on July 13, 14, and 15, 2018. This is an opportunity for children who don't have any identified disabilities to both model for and learn from same age peers who are diagnosed with autism and other related disorders. Youth peer role models should fill out the Cast Member Registration Forms that will be available starting in January, 2018.
For Cast Registration Forms, please go to Member Forms.
YOUNG ADULT PROGRAM PEER ROLE MODEL (15-18 years old)
We are looking for understanding and patient individuals who are in high school (or ages 15-18 years old) to participate as peer models. This will include writing sketches, playing theatre games, participating in exercises, and more! Not only will you be featured during performances in sketches that you help develop in writers’ workshops, but you will be cast along with peers your same age that are diagnosed with autism. High school students who are interested in a career geared towards education, theatre, psychology, or social work programs and related fields will find this to be a valuable learning experience. This opportunity is available for any high school student looking to play a part in making this community better for individuals with different needs and abilities.
