I CAN ONLINE 

We offer Autistic-led online group mentoring programs for 8 – 22-year-old Autistic people. Our program builds confidence and social connection in a safe, positive environment. Autistic young people are able to be themselves, share their interests and common experiences with peers and benefit from I CAN Mentors as role models. With over 350 participants each cycle we are proving our program is effective. *All I CAN Mentors and staff have completed our child protection training and hold current Working With Children Checks or Blue Cards. To read more about our specific groups and what we offer, click on the button below. NOTE: Cycles dates for 2022 are now closed.

“The impact I CAN mentoring has had on my child’s mental health has been overwhelming. She’s coping better in school, talking more with family, and has enthusiasm for things again. It has definitely helped her out of a dark period and I am so, so grateful.” – Parent of an Online Mentee
