SSI Community Services Summer Program for children with Special Needs and Autism requires four (4) students to work part time (30 hrs/wk) at $18.00 per hour.  This job involves working with children age 5-18 with Developmental Disabilities and/or Autism.  Duties include engaging the children in recreational activities, art and music programs, helping the participants access the community, navigate interpersonal relationships and manage behaviours as needed.  There will be training provided, but experience working in a camp setting and supporting people with Special Needs and Autism is a plus.  Camp activities and camper-to-worker ratios will be adapted according to public health protocols for COVID-19.
