Work and Volunteer Experience for Adults with Autism (WAVE)
WAVE (Work and Volunteer Experience) is a new program for adults with autism. Founded by Dovercourt Recreation Association (DRA) and funded by Unity for Autism, WAVE staff endeavour to find work and volunteer placements for adults with autism in the Ottawa area, and support them with the help of job coaches. The goal of the program in part, is for placements to lead to part time paid employment. The WAVE program also aims to raise awareness of the potential of adults with autism; deliver a successful project that leads to further funding and opportunities to extend the WAVE project; and raise awareness of Unity of Autism, WAVE and DRA and their work to support adults with autism. WAVE starts in April 2013.
