Workplace Readiness Program
TeenWORKS™ (Working on Occupational Readiness, Knowledge, and Skills) is a vocational program for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. We help prepare program participants for the workplace and place them in jobs with employers eager to serve as a community partner site. Our program is funded for families in financial need and available on a private pay basis. At this time, we also accept funds through the Autism Treatment Assistance Program (ATAP), Vocational Rehabilitation Programs and Desert Regional Center (DRC).
- Gain job readiness skills
- Understand workplace expectations
- Build their resume
- Develop social and behavioral skills
- Identify a passion in life
Once vocational goals are reached, teens are encouraged to generalize their skills by transitioning to our internship program. Opportunities available on a case-by-case basis.
