Our mission at IMPACT Autism is to harness the incredible volunteerism of University of Florida students to give back to the autism community through quality volunteer opportunities. We seek to accomplish this through coordinating, planning and executing events for local children such as Kid's Day Out, yearly projects like Stomp the Swamp, and with groups such as MyFriends, but we need YOU to make it happen! So far, over 500 UF students have had the opportunity to give back through these special activities, and we seek to increase that number each year.
Requirements for Volunteering at IMPACT Autism Kid's Day Out events:
1) BACKGROUND CHECK

Because we are a nonprofit organization, this is free of charge. Email to receive a background check form, print the form out, and bring it with you when you go to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office (2621 SE Hawthrone Rd, Gainesville, FL 32641.)
2) UF HIPAA AND CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT

This can be found at http://privacy.health.ufl.edu. Email us once you have completed the General Awareness HIPAA, and electronically signed the Confidentiality Statement
3) PAID STUDENT MEMBER
