PROJECTS - 2018 INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Power of NeuroGaming Center

Through the PoNG Center and with help from the San Diego Foundation, we have taken on the awesome and humbling task of providing an internship for up to 25 young adults on the autism spectrum. These students, who have graduated from high school with or without college experience, will spend 8 weeks at RADLab and the PoNG Center at a STEM focused tech-based fellowship. Here, they will acquire and hone video game development skills like computer coding, digital art, and project management. But they will also be paired with coaches and mentors that will develop the soft skills needed to thrive in a mainstream work environment. This is part of an initiative close to our hearts to increase the currently dismal employment rates of individuals with autism and ASD. Stay tuned for amazing things!!
