VIAble Ventures (VV) is a social impact program that develops small, sustainable businesses specifically tailored to create gainful jobs for adults with autism.
The problem of adult employment is widespread within the autism community. The Drexel University National Autism Indicators Report for 2017 showed that only 14% of young adults on the spectrum had any paid employment in the community during the period covered by the study. VIAble Ventures is developing a model that can help change that dire statistic.
VIAble Ventures is currently in the process of launching its first such business – a candle-making enterprise that produces hand-made soy-wax candles for the local craft market and for internet sales. Stay tuned: our first inventory of candles will be hitting stores and the internet soon.
