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.

 

As an organization committed to supporting individuals with ASD we are reaching out to ask you to spread the news about this innovative project and to share the information among your constituents.  We are seeking individuals with ASD interested in a career in security and screening to participate in this “Meaningful Jobs Initiative”.

Interested Participants must;

  • Have a documented ASD Diagnosis
  • Possess a high school diploma
  • Be able to self-transport
  • Live in a geographic proximity that they can reasonably travel to Boston
