Asperger's Job Readiness Program

The next session of the JVS Toronto's Asperger’s Job Readiness Program is scheduled to start on Feb. 11, 2013.

The program was instrumental in helping Toronto's Malcolm Fairweather find a job he enjoys along with a new sense of self-esteem.

Funded through Service Canada and offered in collaboration with Kerry's Place Autism Services, the program helps young adults with Asperger's between the ages of 18 and 30 prepare for employment.

It includes eight weeks of intensive workshops with weekly one-on-one sessions followed by up to 14 weeks of work experience with job coaching.
