Entrepreneurship & Volunteer Experiences
We give opportunities for hands on entrepreneurship experiences. We have had youth entrepreneurs in Obsessions since 2018 . In 2021, we have 5 Autism led businesses in Obsessions Gift Shop. We will be expanding this program with curriculum; marketing for entrepreneurs; etc... If you are interested in our entrepreneurship program, complete our form and contact us.
We also offer volunteer experiences. These experiences assist in enhancing skills to gain employment. Experiences range from customer services, data entry, merchandising, advertising, etc.... A volunteer recently stated the volunteer experience helped her gain more confidence in customer service.
