About FlyBrave

Sales 915
On Etsy since 2016

This store is an employment training program for adults on the Autism Spectrum.

This jewelry line was created initially to give my son John a hobby and a purpose.

Nearly 80% of adults with autism are unemployed and research suggests there is very little data on what they do after their school years. While they are in school, workability programs are available to give them job experience within the community. However, when they turn 22, they age out of the school system and lose workability services, including their beloved jobs, as there are other students in line for their position. Some will age out and enter a day program, very few will find employment opportunities, and others will sit home with a caregiver or respite worker.

This Etsy store gives our clients hands on training in creating product, maintaining inventory, filling orders and customer service (responding to your message requests).
You can read about our mission/vision on our website at www.flybrave.org.

Your purchase says you believe in them.

With love,
Your friends at Fly Brave
