UF CARD is offering a one-week (i.e., five full-days) Employment Boot Camp for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related disabilities (RD). The schedule of activities for the Boot Camp is designed to facilitate the development of professional and personal goals toward career and/or college success. The activities will include: preparing for employment, completing applications and putting together resumes, learning and practicing interview skills, and learning about workplace social skills. By the end of the week, participants will have determined next steps for achieving both their personal and professional goals.
This program is free of charge to participants thanks to generous donations from IMPACT Autism at UF.
Eligible participants must:
- be 18 or older
- have exited high school
