We believe that early intervention is the key to success for the at-risk youth, and youth with autism and different abilities in our community.
By creating trauma informed employment training and internship opportunities we are taking a pro-active approach that can help keep these youth connected to the work force and education opportunities, giving them a head start towards independence and career growth.

Turning a Vision into Reality
Our comprehensive program offers an opportunity for the youth to connect with caring adult mentors, like-minded peers, and a supportive case manager. The case manager will help navigate relationships within the workplace, provide resources relating to the intern’s individual development plan, and assist with resume building and applications for employment, and/or assist with applications for higher education and available financing.

Our program is designed to help develop soft skills such as communication, teamwork, problem solving and professionalism; as well as hard skills tailored towards their internship path. The combination of these employment skills creates an advantage in bridging the gap with prospective employers.
