We know that individuals with autism can be positive contributors to the workplace and the YMCA wants to help those individuals find meaningful employment.

The YMCA Sudbury Employment Services has been chosen to pilot a special project for youth between the ages of 14 to 30 who are on the autism spectrum and have a goal to participate in the workforce. Our staff will work with participants to prepare them for the workforce while educating employers and staff to look past the challenges they may face and highlight the skills and abilities these individuals have.

We are aiming to empower those with autism to build transferable skills, self-esteem, and motivation within a non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere.

The project will deliver a 4 phase model, which will contribute to a customized employment plan based on the skills and job readiness of each individual. Life skills workshops including Good hygiene, social skills, keeping a schedule, transit schedules, effective communication with coworkers and employers and other essential life skills

Participant registration will begin April 18th, 2016.
