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.
