A 12 week, online, life skills course for adults 18-30 who are:

  1. Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  2. Their own guardian

The goal of Thrive is to prepare young adults with ASD for meaningful participation in the workforce and community, and to support participants’ development of self-advocacy skills. Applicants who are accepted participate weekly via Zoom in two-hour courses emphasizing Self-Determination, Life Management (Finances, Nutrition, etc.), and Career Exploration. Half of the course content is taught by Autists with advanced degrees in Special Education. We have both a Fall and Spring cohort and accept applications twice per year.
