The Lab (http://www.thelab.org.au) is a technology club for young people with Asperger’s Syndrome and High Functioning Autism. It’s been running in Melbourne for a while and plans are currently underway for several Labs in the Sydney area, starting with Hornsby but also looking further south around Bondi. There’s a good article on The Lab here.
They are apparently looking for mentors/technical assistants with appropriate technical skills to help run after school sessions a few hours per week with groups of young people aged 10-16.
Appropriate skills include programming, design, and knowledge of popular games and software such as minecraft and gamemaker. This position would suit a computer science student or IT professionals in the IT industry who are looking to give a little back to society whilst getting paid to have fun.
I must admit I’ve been unsuccessful in finding out more about their Sydney plans so far, but it’s such a good cause I’m posting this up anyway. If this sounds like you please send your resume to [email protected].
