John and Carlos started their work-training journey at Yonida Intl. Trading Corp, early this fall. Yonida owners, Gabi and Gigi Aharoni, reached out to Winters Center for Autism and conveyed their desire to partner with the program to support the center’s mission to “Hire for a Higher Purpose.”
Today, we are happy to share that John and Carlos have begun the onboarding process to become paid employees of Yonida, after just a few short months of job training.
Currently the rate of unemployment for adults with autism is 90%. It is with the continued support of caring businesses like Yonida, and the kindness and generosity of our supporters that we can change this statistic. When a supportive business gives us a platform to provide job training then we are a step closer to increasing meaningful and sustainable employment for adults with autism.
