Helping young women with autism develop job skills and greater independence

aka Girl AGain boutique

White Plains, NY

Mission

Yes She Can helps young women with autism and learning disabilities develop transferable job skills through professional coaching in an authentic business setting. More than 80% of adults with autism are not in the workforce. Participants in our program seek employment, greater independence, and the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Trainees are taught all the business processes needed to operate Girl AGain, a resale boutique for American Girl dolls, and are coached on problem-solving, workplace behaviors, social interactions, and emotional regulation. Coaches have expertise in autism and in business. Peer models work side by side with trainees. Yes She Can also educates the community and employers of the capabilities of adults with autism, modeling acceptance and inclusion.
