Unemployment is one of the biggest obstacles that our autism/special needs population faces when they age out of school.
Not only do they lack activities and classes to get involved in, but employers are not ready to welcome people with special needs because of the training required and stigma that accompanies having a disability. SNACK* understood the need of developing an in-house pre-vocational training program that could give the opportunity to these young men and women to practice skills that can be generalized to other work opportunities and achieve independence.
SNACK*works is a program that provides vocational training.
We offer vocational opportunities, providing an actual place to work while practicing traveling to a job site, learning the social skills necessary to be successful in the workplace. Our adults are trained in document destruction, a much-needed service for companies in the area, and are currently building two social enterprises: Mary Neary Cosmetics and our own branded line of Cup of Joe coffee. These e-commerce businesses provide our members with work to do - taking inventory, labeling products and fulfilling orders.
Our members are involved in every aspect of the business and we are able to track progress by collecting data in the completion of different tasks.
Members would be able to have more involvement in the maintenance of inventory, labeling and packing, therefore increasing the amount of jobs and skills learned. By breaking every new task into small achievable goals, data is able to be recorded and tracked to understand the acquisitions of skills. To accomplish this, we added to our team an occupational/ vocational trainer with experience in setting up vocational programs for young adults with autism.
