In Partnership with PALS Autism Society
The PALS Social Enterprise started two years ago and operates out of the PALS Adult Program in Vancouver, BC. It was started in order to overcome a number of the workplace barriers experienced by the students who possess a variety of skills, but for various reasons, cannot go out to conventional job placement.
In June 2018, PALS began packaging The GOOD Chocolatier’s chocolate bars on a weekly basis. This was a monumental step not only for PALS enterprise, but for the students as well as some of them had never been in a paid position before. Our partnership with PALS Autsim Society has flourished with now six students on payroll. Not only has our partnership allowed for six students to receive paid employment but also provided the opportunity for these students to learn a variety of new skills previously not in their repertoire.
