Description

Description

The Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism (NSSA) Green Team is a unique program designed to promote environmental sustainability while fostering vocational and community integration skills for young adults with autism. The NSSA Green Team will recycle glass bottles, cans, and paper at both the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center (Y-JCC) and NSSA headquarters. The Green Team will also offer customized cleaning services using green products at the Suffolk Y-JCC. This project is an opportunity for young adults with ASD to develop social and vocational skills, which will help foster integration into the community, increase independence, enable them to become productive members of the community, and open doors to future employment.
