There are so many benefits of becoming a community partner for EmploymentWorks! 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 EmploymentWorks, you will open your doors to:

  • 4 to 8 motivated young adults with ASD ages 15-29
  • 2 trained staff members and supervisors

= 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.
