Be a buddy! Teenagers and adults are needed to be a one-on-one companion/helper for each special needs kid. The only prerequisite is kindness! The hope is that regular monthly attendance will allow you to be assigned to the same child and build rapport with him/her as you know their levels of capability. Buddies are asked to make a commitment to at least 8 of the 10 months and be present 15 minutes before and after the children leave.
