Perfect Connection

Junior Ambassadors

Perfect Connection is seeking college and high school students that are passionate about the special needs community, empowering others, and changing lives through non-profit management.
Perfect Connection is a non-profit organization that was developed to assist families with resources, to raise awareness through education, to provide advocacy and outreach to members of the autism community and to provide educational and social experiences to children on the Autism Spectrum.

Our Junior Ambassadors Program is one of the many ways we advocate for our community to raise awareness and understanding of the unique needs of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Our Youth Ambassador Program is an opportunity for high school and college students to serve as leaders in raising understanding and support for autism. Our Youth Ambassadors combine their passion for sports, science, and/or the arts with community service to deliver compassionate support and advocacy to help fulfill our mission.

Youth Ambassadors learn critical leadership skills, such as how to recruit, advocate, and fundraise. Our college ambassadors are given a unique insight into finance and operations regarding non-profit management functions, This provides a competitive edge in the workforce after graduation. With increased competition in the college application process, we offer ambitious and good-natured high school students the chance to boost their application efforts.
