Why the Trades?

We empower our clients to leverage their unique visual and perception skills in innovative ways. Our programs not only focus on developing marketable skills for sustainable careers in a growing industry but also foster growth in fine and gross motor skills, executive functioning, problem-solving, and socialization—without contrived scenarios common in other industries serving our clientele.

Our age-appropriate trades programs address a critical gap in the sector, offering tailored support for young adults with ASD. As the baby boomer generation exits the trades, there's a pressing need for skilled workers. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the essential role of trade workers, often overlooked but vital in maintaining our everyday infrastructure.
