The Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) is a social program for young people ages 18 to 25 diagnosed with autism.
YAP is held on Tuesday evenings throughout the year and participants are encouraged to come and hang out with like-minded peers. The program provides a mix of activities including games nights, community activities, information sessions and guest speakers all based on the interests of the group.
Participants also have opportunities to volunteer at AOK events and are encouraged to offer suggestions to the AOK Board of Directors about the needs of young adults with autism in our community.
Thanks to Telus for their $5000 donation to get this program started in 2016.
For 2018, the YAP program was free of charge thanks to our generous donors. Telus Ambassadors dontated a microwave oven, vacuum and table as items for our meeting space! Thank YOU!
