Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism

Growing Adolescent and Young Adult Opportunities

Autism is a lifelong diagnosis that may require different supports through each phase of a person’s life. We believe everyone deserves the opportunities to reach their own personal best. We are committed to providing these opportunities to our adolescents and young adults that will prepare them for each transition in life.

Venture Bound

We are excited to announce that Venture Bound, a transition to employment program, will be supported under the Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism. Kelly Elton, previously Educational Service Director for Bittersweet, will join the GLCA as Venture Bound Executive Director.

This program will focus on providing the necessary social skills, curriculum, vocational training, and employment opportunities for students in high school. The goal of this program will be to secure employment for students upon graduation. Please check out the Venture Bound website for more information about this exciting new program!
