Engage. Employ. Empower.
Spectrum Works is a unique nonprofit that creates job opportunities for individuals with autism by building inclusive workforces at companies. Be part of the solution.
85% of individuals with Autism are unemployed.
We're on a mission to change that.
500,000 young adults with autism in the US are graduating in next ten years. Many have the desire to be employed but lack the skills and experience in an integrated workplace, as well as opportunity. At the same time, companies lack the knowledge of how to implement and manage an inclusive workforce but are interested in employing individuals with autism and other disabilities. The Spectrum Works Solution is the bridge.
YOUNG ADULTS WITH AUTISM
THE SPECTRUM WORKS SOLUTION
are not aware that individuals with autism can be productive workers and lack the knowledge of how to successfully integrate them into the workforce.
are disconnected from career pathways and job training in an integrated workplace.
We believe that people with autism can be integrated into the workforce through education and opportunity. Our vision is to change society’s perception of how corporations can seamlessly employ and integrate people with autism into their workplace. Spectrum Works has created a scalable program that can be fitted to companies to start their integration of people with disabilities into their workforce.
The Spectrum Works model helps young adults with autism live up to their potential for stable, successful, economically self-sufficient lives and, at the same time, helps partner companies create integrated workforces.
The majority of the participants we have served are employed, attending college, or are currently participating in Spectrum Works' job training program.
We believe we can solve the unemployment crisis for individuals with autism in our lifetime. You can help transform lives!
