A helping job I like a lot

Do you have a job? I do! I'm a mentor for kids who have mild autism. What we do is talk about how kids should act or behave when they are in public places. We use fun activities we call unthinkable. The unthinkable things are like villains that take over your brain and make you act the way you do. The unthinkable things are things you might want to do in public, but we are teaching them why they shouldn't do it. We also use a superhero called Super Fly. Super Fly lets you flex your brain and gets rid of the unthinkable things you might want to do. Toward the end of the group, we eat a snack, then go outside to play a game called Capture the Cup. It's similar to Capture the Flag. That is my job, and I like it a lot. I like helping others out, and I am learning a lot while I am there.
