Raising Money To Fund Employment and Job Search Training for young adults on the ASD Spectrum


For many young adults, the transition from secondary school into life as an independent adult can feel stressful, but for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), this important and necessary transition can be overwhelming and frightening. 

You can help young adults on the autism spectrum with this transition.

In the past three years, almost $45,000 has been raised to support three ‘Transition to Life’ 4-month programs, helping more than 35 young adults.  This year our goal is to expand our reach to help more adults throughout Ontario, in a partnership with Kerry’s Place. Our goal is to raise $20,000 this year to create a suite of online courses and materials to help those on the spectrum reach their potential.

Kerry’s Place’s Young Adults Project has launched their employment attainment and retention program, which includes flexible, person-centred programming targeting pre-employment & job readiness, job searching & development, on-site job coaching, employer training & workplace mentorship, on-going support & coaching, service navigation and community referrals.

Autism Ontario is working with Kerry’s Place to produce online webinars for program participants to view to complement their in-class sessions and coaching, at no cost to them. These webinars will focus on topics such as interpersonal communication in a work context as well as understanding and developing self-advocacy skills. Contextual role-plays will also be included in the webinars so that participants can practice in tandem with their coach or peers in a work or classroom environment.

Why are we focussed in a new direction?  It’s simple.  We want to make a bigger impact and grow our programming for adults, with your help.

Did you know?

-1 in 66 children is diagnosed with ASD (latest 2018 Canadian prevalence rate), and they grow up to be adults;

-Over the next few years, 18,000 students with autism will exit school into a system that is unprepared to meet their needs;

-Right now, 87% of adults with ASD are currently unemployed or underemployed in Ontario. 


We are looking for sponsors as well as spectators.
