NextStep provides opportunities for community engagement to youth and young adults on the autism spectrum or who are facing social and/or emotional challenges. Our goal is to cultivate social connections and develop skills in a community setting that is supporting and understanding of one’s differences and strengths.


Our services empower individuals of differing abilities to lead active and rewarding lives in their communities. Our programs are best for youth and young adults 18+ years old, who have support needs for community engagement; who are interested in volunteering and learning new skills; or who are interested in employment opportunities working with others.

Funding for programs is changing. Our programs can provide full-time community engagement, with continued learning and job skills training programming, within your Passport funded budget.
