Young Adults Project (YAP) is an initiative at Kerry’s Place Autism Services which focuses on supporting adults 18 years or older with Autism Spectrum Disorder who are looking to enter the workforce, retain meaningful employment, and pursue post-secondary education. The Young Adults Project provides individualized support to adults with ASD at any point in their employment journey. The YAP participants work with an Autism Consultant to establish employment and educational goals, connect with service providers, advocate for accommodations and maintain employment. All services have been adapted to be offered virtually using Zoom.
There is no cost associated to participate in the project. YAP is suitable for adults who are motivated to look for meaningful employment, are open to collaborate with the consultant and to participate in searching for and applying to jobs.
