Saint Joseph's University Kinney Center | High School Volunteer Program

The Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support, located on the campus of Saint Joseph’s University, has a two-fold mission: to train the autism professionals of tomorrow, while supporting and serving the individuals and families affected by autism today. Through the fulfillment of this mission we have served more than 900 families and train up to 150 undergraduates annually.

The Kinney Center is currently seeking high school volunteers to serve as peer role models in our summer camp program. This experience will provide high school students with hands-on experience working with individuals with ASD, while creating meaningful friendships and connections with campers and fellow students. High School volunteers are asked to volunteer for a week of camp (Monday - Thursday 9:30am - 3:30pm). They can choose to participate in one or multiple weeks.


Due to COVID-19, our plans are constantly evolving to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. We are planning to hold Camp 2021 on-ground, but will have alternative roles if camp transitions to a virtual format.
