Who doesn't like to receive letters in the mail? It may seem "old fashioned" but it is a beautiful and authentic way to connect with another person.
Pen Pal Project (Virtual): Two Thumbs Up is looking for volunteers to be Pen Pals with the youth they serve. Volunteers must write one letter a month and commit to doing this for 3 months. Once registered, Rabun Robertson from Two Thumbs Up will provide you with the details about your Pen Pal and where to send the letter. Volunteers only need to register once unless they want more than one PenPal. Each letter will count as 1 service hour. There are multiple dates on the calendar however, letters can be written on any day of the month.
Two Thumbs Up is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia that provides youth and young adults with autism and other special needs social opportunities to connect with neuro-typical peers and each other. They connect with teens from all over the city and "pair" them with individuals on the autism spectrum. In that sense, every event they host is diverse and not an autism or special needs group. We all get the opportunity to share together and learn from each other.
