EmploymentWorks Canada is a newly designed program that offers employment preparedness training for individuals ages 15-29 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who are no longer attending school, and who are seeking opportunities to develop the essential skills necessary to obtain meaningful and sustainable paid employment. It is a peer/co-worker supported program that uses adult learning principals to focus on social, communication and job skills development in a variety of workplace settings and teams.
CommunityWorks Canada® is a peer supported pre-employment program for teens and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ages 15-21 who are currently attending high school. The program is delivered during after school hours and provides participants with the opportunity to develop and practice basic job skills, improve social and communications skills, acquire community volunteer experience and cultivate potential areas of interest for future employment.
