What is CLASSP?
The Consortia for Learning and Service to Special Populations (CLASSP) was created in response to the growing interests of the special needs community. CLASSP is a collaborative project of nine New York community based organizations. CLASSP has helped over 170 high school students transform the lives of hundreds of children with disabilities and receive valuable job experience.

Internship Description: CLASSP is a year-long internship designed to provide select high school students new skills and approaches of working with special needs children who have Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD.) Upon completion of the program, students receive 1 college credit and a stipend. Students who are interested in working with ASD children are eligible for future employment opportunities. Following their training, students join our professional special needs staff in working with ASD children (ages 5-11) in our Sunday Funday and Specialized After School programs. Applying their new skills and individual talents, students help children develop their strengths through creative play, dance, arts & crafts, yoga, story time and more.
