Volunteering

Do you want to do something different? Something that will change your life forever?

Take part in ‘M’Apunto’, the volunteering project of Fundació Junts Autisme and help us to improve the life and future of people with autism and their families.

Volunteers are an essential part of our organisation. Without the regular help of volunteers, we would not be able to offer some of the services we do. Public funding for people with autism is very limited and families are not always able to pay for the care and services their sons and daughters need. This is why volunteering is so important for organisations like ours. Their collaboration in the various departments and services is a tremendous help.

What is M’Apunto?

M’Apunto was born five years ago as a dynamic and very complete programme in which the volunteer gets to know the different areas of work within the foundation first hand, actively participating in the work of the professional team, in decision-making and in proposing initiatives.

On the other hand, people who work with people with autism need to have specific knowledge about this condition, to know the characteristics of the person with autism and what are the supports he/she needs.

That is why M’Apunto offers volunteers:

  • Training
  • Follow-up
  • Evaluation

The training consists of

  • General training on autism
  • Situation management
  • Specialisation by assigned work group. For this last training, we take into account the needs of the people with autism with whom we will work and the interest or needs of the volunteer.

When we organise activities in collaboration with other organisations, such as inclusive leisure activities, we activate the volunteer training protocol for the professional team of these organisations who will be in contact with people with autism.

What do we look for in our volunteers?

Enthusiasm, commitment, ethics, generosity and professionalism are some of the values shared by the volunteers who work with Fundació Junts Autisme. Dedicated people, often with a personal link to autism, who offer their support to the organisation’s professional team, becoming positive references for the beneficiaries and their families.

Volunteers enrich the daily work of the organisation’s team by bringing their experience and personalities, adding value to the services we offer and to the spirit of the organisation. Their experience, initiative and talent help us to grow and improve.

We are looking for people who want to participate in, implement and collaborate on our projects to support people with autism and/or their families:

  • Psycho-educational intervention activities specialised in autism
  • Awareness raising initiatives
  • Leisure activities
  • Activities related to the daily management of the organisation
  • Training of professionals

What is the academic/professional profile of the volunteers at Fundació Junts Autisme?

We do not have a specific profile. The most important thing for us is that the person interested wants to be part of the human team of the organisation and feels identified with our mission, vision and values. In short, they need to be moved by the same thing as we are.

The most common profiles are as follows

  • Psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Sociologists
  • Educators or teachers
  • Caregivers or educators who wish to specialise in autism
  • Social integrators
  • Occupational therapists
  • People who, regardless of their training, want to help with leisure activities or events
  • Students doing their internship in the organisation
