A program built for success
CWC was conceived with one simple goal in mind: to support and invest in the talents of people with ASD as they navigate employment opportunities and contribute to their communities.
A Better Quality of Life
There are many benefits for individuals who participate in the program. It helps create new friendships, builds self-esteem and improves job readiness. Volunteer experiences in the community foster increased independence and provide opportunities to sample various work and social skills, including things like punctuality and self-care.
Volunteer work experiences provide program participants with the opportunity to practice and enhance their social, communication and employment skills, helping to open up a world of opportunities, including identifying future job prospects, generating ideas for self-employment, or a return to school.
Evaluation & Goal Setting
Program Facilitators work closely with peer mentors to record video segments and collect data related to individual participant goals. These goals may include increasing pre-employment skills, following workplace culture or developing and improving other social and personal skills.
