Who We Are

Autism Career Training (ACT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides center-based vocational and prevocational training for individuals on the autism spectrum. We use research-based interventions to prepare our trainees to succeed in meaningful careers and become contributing members of their communities.

Our Mission

At ACT, our mission is to identify the abilities of our trainees and to transform those abilities into job skills desired by employers. We use research-based curriculum and hands-on programs designed to prepare trainees for success in the workplace.

Create Opportunities

When you donate to ACT, you are enabling our staff to reach more candidates and create more opportunities for life-changing training and career placement. Your donation will be used to offset expenses related to our training programs in order to keep the cost to families low. All donations are tax-deductible.

Prepare for Success

Upon completion of our programs, our trainees will be prepared to succeed in meaningful careers. The goal of our program is to enable our trainees to become contributing members of their communities.
