Project Inspire

Work is a key element in adult life. All of us learn and develop as workers based on our previous work experiences, such as summer and after-school jobs, or career development activities, such as shadowing, observing others on the job, volunteering, or interning. Often individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have limited access to job opportunities for career development and employment.

St. Mary's County Recreation and Parks has introduced a new program called Project Inspire. Project Inspire is a continuation of Camp Inspire, a specially designed program for students diagnosed with Autism. The goal of Project Inspire is to have students, ages 18 – 21 experience a variety of job sampling, and job related skills at businesses in our local community.

Our students are accompanied by two Autism Job Coordinators, along with one instructor. There will be up to six students that will participate in either job shadowing or work on job related skills at local businesses.
