Positions

Skillbuilders

Form and payment of $75 are due March 31st, 2017.

In order to be selected as a Skillbuilder, you must have attended an Inclusion conference. Skillbuilders will be selected based on their experience and interest in working with students with disabilities and their responses to the attached questions. Please ensure that you complete both pages of the application. As a skillbuilder, you will serve as a guide and a friend to all the delegates and delegate assistants in your group during sessions, and will lead your group through the Skillbuilding Manual we provide. This opportunity is an incredible experience that will be extremely rewarding. You must also attend a compulsory Training (Date TBA) where you will receive training on the needs of specific delegates.

Delegate Assistants

Form and payment of $75 are due March 31st, 2017.

This application form is for students who have experience working with people who have special needs and/or have an interest in working with students with special needs. This is a different position from the traditional conferences and it is called a Delegate Assistant. A Delegate Assistant is very similar to an E.P.A. in a school. You will be acting as an E.P.A. throughout this conference, working one-on-one with a Delegate during Skill building sessions, as well as the other activities. Please note: You will not be responsible for administering medicine or any first aid process. You will be required to make prior communication with the Delegate and their parents to learn specific needs. You will also be attending a compulsory Training Retreat (Date TBA) where you will be receiving training on the needs of specific delegates.
