Yes She Canhttp://www.yesshecaninc.org
Yes She Can is dedicated to helping young women with autism and related social and learning disabilities develop transferable job skills and workplace social skills through authentic work experience. We serve teen girls in transition from high school to adulthood, women who have completed high school, and college women to enable them to gain and sustain employment and build careers in the competitive job market. We operate Girl AGain, a resale boutique for American Girl dolls where we teach various business skills such as retail operations, marketing, inventory management, customer service, and sales. Our clinical professionals coach trainees on social skills, self advocacy, and managing frustrations. Our goal for our trainees is to become employed in local businesses, with or without ongoing supports. Through customer interactions at Girl AGain, we create awareness of the need for employment opportunities and inclusion in the workforce for people with autism.
