Volunteer .... confusing word

Postby msacalifornia » Wed May 09, 2012 12:12 am

I've been reading all the posts when you talk about volunteers. I understood their play with the families is a contribution and a learning experience that gets the training as a reward. Isn't it? The times I have volunteered for many other purposes and never got paid or requested any money. It's really confusing....

Hello,

We agree! The experience of doing something meaningful, being part of an amazing process with a special child, learning more about yourself and gaining experience in Autism and The Son-Rise Program with full training provided is the the pay-off. However, some families prefer to pay their volunteers.

Warm regards,

Hi,

Well you would indeed need to have sufficient funds available to be able to pay them in the first place, which is the case for the parents that pay their workers. Some get funding from their local school district to pay their workers. Also some meet in the middle and just cover their travel expenses.

Best wishes,

Becky, thanks a lot for your statements and comments. They are really helpful. By the way, I will be there for the Start Up in June. I am so grateful with the program and so thankful to give my son a meaningful choice, he got potty trained thanks to this warm program. Yesterday I saw one of the videos that you posted in FAcebook about Inspiration... I found myself there, I have many worries. Looking forward to find the answers and give the choice of happines that my son and I deserve it.

Warm regards,

If you were just at the start up I may have met you because I too was just there.
