IGNITE

IGNITE is a unique “peer-to-peer” community center for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome transitioning into adulthood. IGNITE offers activities and educational groups that foster independence and social interaction. Members work toward financial, educational, and employment success.

IGNITE is a place where members come together to share ideas, learn practical skills, build friendships, and feel comfortable being themselves.
