There are so many benefits of becoming a community partner for Worktopia programs! First, it allows organization to open their doors to a group of young employees-to-be that are motivated, willing to apply themselves to their fullest, and open to new experiences and challenges. Second, it provides organizations with a unique opportunity to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder, to raise awareness among colleagues and employees and to learn more about the inclusive hiring practices. A total win-win situation!

As a community partner for CommunityWorks Canada®, you will open your doors to:

  • 6 motivated students with ASD ages 15-21
  • 7 university students with the role of supporting our participants with ASD 
  • 3 trained staff members 

= a dynamic group of interns to help your organization

100% of Worktopia community partners across Canada reported that:

  • They would participate in the program again.
  • Their experience was mostly positive.
  • The tasks completed by participants with ASD met standards and expectations.
