You can get us started by donating today to Spectrum Tech Trade School Village and Training Center's Proof of Concept Weekend Vocational Program for Autistic Students ages 12 through 21. By creating this proof of concept we will be able to apply as a private school and start fundraising for our own property. 90 % of autistic adults are either unemployed or underemployed and 50% of 25-year-olds have never held a paying job. This shows a failing system which starts with an education that is based on behavior and compliance instead of student-centered and career focused. Why should college or nothing be the only choices for autistic students? You can make a difference and help change the narrative. We are a 501c3 nonprofit creating a collaborative cross-sector transformative network with a comprehensive set of supports that empowers, elevates, and amplifies autistic talents with targeted training, experiential learning, and intensive support therapies, seeding and leading system change in autism education, job training, and career development, providing the framework of sustainable opportunities centered around our trade schools, agricultural innovation centers, and inclusive neuro-divergent affirming villages.
