AWETISM is our annual I CAN Network expo where Autistic/ neurodivergent students put the awe in Awetism! The event, now in its eighth year, creates a platform for Autistic/ neurodivergent students from our I CAN mentoring programs, both within schools and online, to present their interests and unique skills. This year ‘AWETISM 22’ will also provide opportunities to build meaningful career pathways for Autistic young adults. The event is our way of celebrating Autistic and neurodiverse young people and we hope you can join us!
