As an Ambassador for Autism, you will attend social functions (i.e. school, work, church, club), meet with dignitaries, engage with political figures & celebrities, and speak publicly about Autism Acceptance. Are you up to the challenge? This isn’t always going to be an easy task or journey. You will have moments that will break your heart (as your eyes are opened up to the "Auttie World"). Because, you will see, first-hand, the struggles the "Autistic Face" in trying to find or cope with employment in a world that doesn’t fully accept them. You’ll be distressed and upset when you discover local incidents of bullying and crimes against the "Autistic Face".
As part of your Ambassadorship, you’ll fight for civil rights and liberties and continuously drive the message that people on the Spectrum of Autism (ASD) are citizens – no less than anyone else. When you see or hear of crimes against the "Autistic Face", report them to us as quickly as possible, and work with us to advocate for the individual of whom is on the Spectrum of Autism (ASD). You’ll be a local spokesperson for BAFOL, Inc., and potentially, the person who makes a difference in the lives of those with Autism in your community.
In your role as Ambassador, Booker Autism Foundation of Learning, Inc. (BAFOL), serves as your headquarters, giving you information, contacts and resources needed to be an outstanding Ambassador. We want you to succeed, because your apart of the BAFOL FAMILY!
Imagine living in a world where you are constantly hearing sounds, chatter, and noise that you don’t understand, where you can’t find the words to communicate with others, where you continually feel a sense of loneliness, isolation, and fear. This is the reality that many children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) face every day.
We are very familiar with this "Auttie World"...because, WE LIVE, EAT AND BREATHE it! We encourage everyone to not give up and seek out help to lift you up, and provide HOPE to those on the Spectrum of Autism (ASD)!
