Community Advisory Council Member:

SOAR has developed a Community Advisory Council in order to broaden our base of knowledge and experience.    Our Community Advisory Council is a group of community volunteers who provide feedback and input to our Board, helping ensure diversity through representation of professional expertise as well as representation of neuro-minorities within SOAR's mandate.   The feedback we receive from Council members helps ensure that our programming is suited to the needs of the community and reflects best practice. We are seeking two categories of volunteers to join our Community Advisory Council:

Professional Advisors:


Professional advisors are selected for their wealth of experience and knowledge in a certain field. It is our hope that these members will use their expertise to guide our undertakings, as well as to broaden our professional network. They are an essential part of our success in opening new doors and reaching a wider audience. These are low commitment roles that have a high impact. 


Lived Experience Advisors:

Lived experience advisors are selected for their personal experience living as a member a neuro-minority, and their passion for drawing on their own experiences to help others who may face similar challenges or barriers.  They are essential to ensuring that we develop programming that meets the needs of the people we aim to support.
