Autism Spectrum Disorder is a medical condition that affects the brain (neurological) in approximately 3.5 million people in the U.S. While a person may have a normal physical appearance, autism affects behavior. Autism can make it difficult for a person to interact socially. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation with a mission to improve higher education, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities for young adults 13-30 years of age on the autism spectrum through financial support, programs and other initiatives. 

We seek your support to achieve following:  

  • Increase public awareness of the talents and strengths possessed by autistic youth and adults
  • To advocate on behalf of autistic persons who may not have ability to do so
  • To provide support to autistic persons in their pursuit of higher education, careers or entrepreneurship (in the form of grants)
  • To educate and support autistic adults in pursuing lifelong independence

While progress has been made in raising autism awareness, there is a significant deficit in understanding and acceptance of autistic persons. This is shown in the under-representation of autistic persons in workplaces, colleges and small businesses.
