Accepting Applications for EmploymentWorks Canada (EWC) and CommunityWorks Canada® (CWC)
Posted: November 1, 2017 in General Autism News
Worktopia is pleased to announce that is it accepting applications for the Winter sessions of the EmploymentWorks Canada and the CommunityWorks Canada® programs, which are both scheduled to start in early January 2018.
EmploymentWorks Canada (EWC) is a program that offers employment preparedness training for individuals ages 15-29 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who are no longer attending school and are seeking opportunities to practice and develop the essential skills necessary to obtain sustainable employment.
CommunityWorks Canada® (CWC) is a pre-employment training program for teens and young adults ages 15 to 21 with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This innovative peer-mentorship program facilitates social inclusion and community engagement and helps participants develop life and employment skills through readiness training and volunteer experience.
We are currently accepting applications for both of these programs, and if you are interested in registering, please contact Mike Barrett firstname.lastname@example.org.
Worktopia is sponsored by The Sinneave Family Foundation and Autism Speaks Canada, and is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities Program.
