Online “Open” Simpatico Mentoring Pilot Program Listening Session for Adults, 6/12/22, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

06/12/2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm, Free

DESCRIPTION: Program managers of the AANE’s new mentoring initiative called “Simpatico” (currently being developed) are seeking valuable feedback from autistic adults as we continue to evolve this program which will match autistic mentees to autistic mentors. Program leaders will be hosting a virtual listening session on Sunday, June 12th from 11:00am-12:00pm/ET at which time we hope to learn more about the autistic adult perspective on how this new program can address the wants and needs within the autistic community. Learn more about the pilot program here.
