We are proud to say that our short documentary "MAKING A DIFFERENCE: The Ascent Youth Alliance to Battle Autism" was selected as the BEST EDUCATIONAL DOCUMENTARY in the JULY 2010 NY International Independent Film & Video Festival. Please know that AYABA student volunteers have been giving principals, deans, teachers, coaches, community leaders, friends and family in a position to possibly help spread tolerance, awareness and acceptance for children with autism both DVDs of the film as well as the trailer link. We are still looking to recruit additional student volunteers in other towns with the hope they can get their school administrators to show "Making a Difference" in their district in classrooms and/or at an assembly. It is rewarding and easy community service, and comes with a letter acknowledging the volunteer's efforts on behalf of the cause."

 

For those of you on Facebook, please:

(i) post the link to the trailer (www.youtube.com/user/AYABANY) on both your wall and your "Events" page;

(ii) copy and paste the following language to your Facebook Events and Wall posts immediately next to or beneath the trailer you posted: "Please perform EASY & REWARDING COMMUNITY SERVICE by volunteering for the Ascent Youth Alliance to Battle Autism (www.ayabany.org). AYABA’s mission is to (a) promote awareness, tolerance and acceptance for kids with autism, (b) raise funds for the education and socialization kids with autism and (c) teach today’s youth that whether alone or as part of a group, they can make a difference for those with special needs";

(iii) ask your friends to do the same.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to visit our website, and hope you find the various links both informative, rewarding and fun. Given that approximately 1 in every 98 children are now currently diagnosed with autism, having a sense of community and the chance to make a difference to those not as fortunate as ourselves is so important!

 

AYABA, a program of the 501C3 Ascent Funding Organization, is a small army of student volunteers helping local children impacted by autism reach their full potential-by not only raising funds necessary for their education and enhancement of their socialization skills but by promoting awareness, tolerance and acceptance as well. 4Boyz Autographs to Battle Autism (4Boyz ABA) donates autographed memorabilia for the AYABA Student Volunteer Fundraiser and over 25 autism and children related charities across Long Island, NYC and New Jersey.

 

For those who are not students, you very well are in a position to make a difference! If you have friends or family who are educators, please put them in touch with us. If you have children, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers, sisters or friends who are students, please tell them about AYABA. Or if you simply would like to make a donation to the Ascent Funding Organization (the 501C3 non-profit of which AYABA is a program of), that would work as well. Whether by "sweat" or "financial" equity, IT'S ALL GOOD!

 

We appreciate your taking the time to hear our story, and thank you for hopefully becoming part of a great group...special people helping those with special needs.

If you are a student, you can make a difference by volunteering for the Ascent Youth Alliance to Battle Autism (AYABA) Program. Notwithstanding the fact that it will take up very little of your time-your efforts will play an integral part in making a difference for kids with autism and other disabilities. At the very least, changing the mindset about people with disabilities, promoting volunteerism and giving back will be but a few of the consequential benefits of your volunteerism and the documentary.

 

There are a multitude of easy ways for you to volunteer and receive EASY COMMUNITY SERVICE. Please click on the link below to see the flyer for our upcoming BRAVEGOALS4AUTISM and BRAVESAVES4AUTISM event as well as a sample of the letter we or you can conform for you-to bring to your principal, dean, school administrator and/or teacher along with a DVD of the film. Or merely refer to the language which appears below the MAKING A DIFFERENCE film poster on how to post the trailer to the film on your Facebook page.

 

*ALL STUDENT VOLUNTEERS WILL RECEIVE A LETTER OF APPRECIATION ACKNOWLEDGING THEIR COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR THEIR COLLEGE APPLICATION*"
