Career Development Camp

Career Development Camp is an educational opportunity for individuals impacted by autism spectrum disorder, social and communication challenges, and other learning differences. The program is open to transition-age and post-secondary students who are looking to improve their skills in the areas of independent living, social communication, and employability skills. Turning Pointe partners with local employers to provide students access to hands-on training opportunities in a variety of fields and settings. Career Development Camp operates for 6-weeks, from June to July. Programming will be provided in skill-driven domains and students may enroll and participate in any or all courses in the domain areas. Students that attend the Career Development Camp often return for the full program in the fall.
