About Us

The Able Teens program (TAT) is a service learning-based after school program for vocational training for students aged 14-25 with developmental disabilities (including autism). TAT is great opportunity for teens and young adults to hone social, technical, and academic skills to ease the transition into post-high school life. In the past, TAT members have practiced such skills as cleaning, cooking, food preparation, event set-up, organization and customer service. They also learn how to search for a job or higher education program, complete an application, write a resume, and interview. TAT utilizes person centered plans to build curriculum and service projects reflecting the interests of its members. Through vocational training and volunteer work experiences, TAT members gain skills and connections for long-term employment or postsecondary education and an increased sense of independence.
