What is as2yp?
Founded in the summer of 2010, Autism Speaks to Young Professionals (AS2YP) has grown to accommodate a larger membership group. Our membership is made of business professionals, graduate students, direct service providers, teachers, and many other young professionals. While many of our members have a direct connection to autism (sibling, cousin, friend, etc.), a great number of our members have no personal connection at all, thus raising awareness about our mission. While the mission of Autism Speaks is our first priority, AS2YP also works to connect members professionally and socially. In short, there is a place within AS2YP for everyone!
