Autism Job Fair

Helping increase employment opportunities for those on the spectrum

The Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, along with our partners at DES, have had the great opportunity to host 4 Autism Job Fairs in the Phoenix area over the last three years. Hundreds of teens and young adults had the opportunity to speak with employers willing and excited to hire them. We hope to continue to host one Autism Job Fair each year.

Thank you to all of the employers that have attended our Autism Job Fairs over the years and the volunteers and staff that make these possible!
