Artistas Café Mission:
Changing Lives One Bean at a Time
The first Artistas Café opened in January, 2011 at Mercedes-Benz of Tampa.The Artistas Café program provides training, internships and employment for high functioning adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autism is a neurobiological developmental delay that affects 1 in every 110 children born today.
As these children grow up and become of age to be employed, a staggering over 86% of those diagnosed with ASD remain unemployed.
Our program is focused on showing the capabilities of these individuals. We believe that with the right training, support and environment, these individuals make excellent team members, not just for Artistas Café, but for any business in our community!
Through our program, we provide Autism training for our Corporate Partners employees to ensure the success of our program and our team members.
Proceeds from Artistas Café support Art for Autism, a 501(c)(3) organization to continue to expand training, education, and programs to improve the lives of those touched by autism.
