Our Transition To Work program is a set of events that helps prepare young adults for their transition into the working world.
Participants learn how to:
- Create a Resume/CV,
- Apply for Jobs and
- Prepare for a Job Interview.
Through collaborative relationships with local businesses, we work to place ASD youth in jobs that help to provide a smooth transition into the workforce.
Those who are not ready for job placement are placed in volunteer positions where they can develop the additional skills and experience necessary to be successful.

“I am Andrew, a current college freshman and an individual with Asperger’s syndrome. I took the time today to participate in the 2nd Annual Job Fair at the Memorial Art and I was actually filled with anxiety (both excited and nervous at the same time) preparing for such an event. However, after the event, I felt very confident about searching for a job opportunity that suits my skills.”
“…feedback was very positive and gave the opportunity to express myself in a relax and confident way. This experience was totally a great challenge and gave myself a different approach and view about how to navigate the potential job opportunity.”
“…the experience with this job fair is a great reminder for me to continue work hard in college to reach the best job opportunity in life.”
“…I want to give a special thanks to the Autism Council to bring together organizations and institutions to support and empower those like me that have limits opportunities in the work place. This is a great reminder that we can all have a better future and be an active member of the society.”
