[ARCHIVED] Putting the Pieces Together: Township continues work with Autism Employment Network

Cranberry Township prides itself on being an inclusive place for residents, visitors, and employees alike.

A successful partnership that began in 2020 is giving opportunities and helping develop skills for members of the community who otherwise may have a hard time finding such a chance.

Through a partnership with the Autism Employment Network, the Township employed individuals with autism at the Waterpark in 2020. After a successful summer, Township officials are seeking additional positions within the Township to offer similar opportunities.

The partnership with Progress City LLC includes training and education for Township staff, including autism awareness and techniques for workplace inclusion. Weekly check-ins are maintained to ensure the program is running smoothly, and a continuing discussion of other possible jobs will occur.

The goal is to match jobs with skill sets while also helping participants develop new skills along the way.

The Board of Supervisors at their January 28 meeting authorized an agreement for the 2021 calendar year.
