The ACAT Program is unique in that it is designed and directed by Autistics and other neurodivergent people.

We are looking for innovative, progressive individuals who can instruct creatively and intentionally in a community-based adult transition and adult day program. Our teachers work collaboratively with co-instructors in a 3-to-1 student to teacher ratio to problem solve, take initiative when appropriate, and be able to ask questions rather than give directives in order to enable participants to make their own choices. A strong belief in equality, the rights of disabled people, and neurodiversity are essential.

Job Responsibilities encompass instruction in areas of independent living skills [i.e. cooking, money management, travel training. etc.], community integration, and vocational skills.

It is an opportunity that leads to a better future for students, yet also holds rich benefits for those willing to dedicate two years of their life to national service through AmeriCorps. That’s why we call the opportunity: Teach, Serve, Grow.
