WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

Greens Do Good opens its doors to surrounding New Jersey school districts, offering Workforce Development to teens and young adults with autism.

Autism is the fastest-growing neurological disability, with New Jersey having one of the highest prevalence rates in the country. We know that half of 25-year-olds with autism have never held a paying job, and despite workforce development efforts, adults with autism remain one of the most under-employed of all disability categories and far lower than their peers.

Through our Workforce Development Program, we provide pre-employment training to teens with autism, teaching them environmentally sustainable practices and offering hands-on experience.

With the anticipated growth of the global hydroponics market approaching 22.5% through 2025, Greens Do Good provides a unique opportunity for job training within an expanding industry.

We are proud to work with surrounding schools and programs including:

  • Alpine Learning Group
  • EPIC
  • REED Academy
  • Passaic Valley Regional High School
  • Ridgefield Park High School
  • AVIDD
  • New Bridges School
