September 05, 2014

(September 5, 2014) - From New York Collaborates for Autism and the Arc of Westchester

The Yonkers District Attorney’s office is one of the many employers in the Westchester area that has hired a graduate of the high school to employment transition program, Project SEARCH Collaborates for Autism. With Arc of Westchester’s help, Geoff, a member of the 2014 graduating class, began working at the Yonkers District Attorney’s Office in May. He stood out among other applicants because of his willingness to learn and his undeniable enthusiasm for the job opportunity. Paul Stein, Assistant District Attorney explains, “I was pleasantly surprised by Geoff. Your instinct is to go easy on him but then you realize you really don’t have to.”
