Fast Forward College Coaching works individually with young adults to reduce anxiety, increase confidence and build skills for success in the workplace and life after high school. Utilizing a person-centered approach, our coaches will conduct an in-depth discovery and intake process to learn each young adult's strengths, skills, interests, passions and possible obstacles to success. After the initial meeting, coaches provide 1:1 support to:

  • Explore and research career fields, occupation trends and education/work skill requirements 

  • Practice and prepare for job interviews through instruction and repetition in these areas: appropriate dress, nonverbal communication, responding to questions, preparing questions to ask the potential employer  

  • Create resumes & cover letters

  • Navigate the job search and job application process

  • Utilize executive functioning skills in personal & home organization and time management

  • Discuss budgeting &money management

  • Explore their local community for social opportunities, connections and groups with likeminded peers

  • Assistive technology options for personal and home independence

Our coaches have specialized training and experience supporting diverse learners including young adults with autism.

 

Each meeting offers:

  • Practical strategies

  • Planning & organization

  • Goal setting that empowers your young adult to take control of their decision making.

 

After College support provides important skills to fill a gap that currently exists in services for young adults who are high functioning but still need practical skills in order to live independently and succeed socially and professionally in the workplace.

We support young adults with autism by teaching transferrable & practical skills needed to be successful both in college and in the workplace.
