Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania provides a wide array of job training and education programs, including a program for individuals with Autism whose goal is to obtain competitive employment.  Goodwill’s PASSAGES program (Providing Autism Support Services to Achieve Gainful Employment) ensures students have the necessary social and emotional skills needed to enter the workforce.

Through small, individualized and structured classes, PASSAGES prepares students to understand work and related issues, adapt to the workplace, manage time and resources, interview effectively and advocate for themselves.  Students gain an increased self-confidence and an understanding of their interests and abilities, empowering them and helping them to achieve their employment goals.
