The project will explore and develop a unique mentoring concept that pairs autistic youth with
older autistic peers in 1-on-1 mentoring relationships. While several mentoring models exist for
pairing autistic youth with neurotypical mentors (people without autism), this project represents
a novel model, for which no precedent exists.
