WORK Inc. Announces the "Meaningful Jobs Initiative"

Meaningful Jobs Initiative

We are excited to announce that The May Institute in collaboration with WORK Inc. was awarded a two-year grant to train individuals with ASD to enter the robust Security Industry field.  Research shows that many people with ASD have greater focusing skills for certain types of tasks than neurotypical counterparts, yet an estimated 90% of these adults are either unemployed or underemployed.  The Meaningful Jobs Initiative will help to prepare individuals with ASD to navigate the interviewing process, background checks and learn the job based competencies associated with security screening process.
