Employment Opportunities for Adults with Autism
JoyDew Foundation is extremely proud to partner with local companies and provide real-world experiences and long-term job opportunities for our members. In 2012, our members were hired by the army to analyze aerial and satellite images. The program was so successful that today there remain over 40 employed soldiers with autism. Five years later, in 2017, we partnered with the Bergen County Hospital Radiology Department, where our members learned to record mammography charts.
These are just a few examples of the many exciting pilot programs for adults with autism in our local community. We are continually expanding and establishing new connections through which we can offer our members more varied job opportunities.
