”Neurodiversity may be every bit as crucial for the human race as biodiversity is for life in general." — Harvey Blume, 1998
We are a Colorado nonprofit that prepares neurodiverse students for careers in the drone industry. We have been approved as a CDLE Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Vendor AND our Registered Apprenticeship Program is approved by the US Department of Labor.
Our mission at Neurodiversity Works is to support and empower individuals with unique neuro-differences, such as autism, ADHD, and dyslexia, in their pursuit of careers in the drone industry. We believe that neurodiversity should be celebrated and not viewed as a disability. Nearly 20% of the population is neurodiverse, yet there is an 85% under/unemployment rate in the neurodiverse workforce. Our programs are designed to help these individuals reach their full potential and succeed in the workforce.
In order to fulfill our mission, we have several initiatives in place. We provide comprehensive workforce development programs that prepare students for successful careers in the drone industry. Our programs are designed to foster inclusivity and support the unique strengths and talents of neurodiverse individuals, helping them to achieve their full potential in this rapidly growing field. To accomplish this, we partner with local families, School to Work Alliance Programs, Career Technical Education programs, and other support and advocacy organizations.

At Neurodiversity Works, we are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all of our clients, students, and employees. We believe that diversity in backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives is essential to the success of our mission to empower underrepresented communities through workforce development programs in the drone industry. We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment, and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or any other protected characteristic.
We understand that DEI is an ongoing journey and we are dedicated to continuously improving our practices and creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all.
