Cheetah Clean Auto Wash has had the great opportunity of working with the Kelly Autism Program over the past few years. The team was more than happy to welcome them back again earlier this month, and we’re looking forward to working with them through July!
KAP is designed to provide services to individuals as early as seven years old, lasting all the way through adulthood, who have been diagnosed along the Autism Spectrum Continuum, as well as their families. The KAP has provided three helpers for us this year, assisting in the wash and detailing of cars, while also providing phenomenal customer service at the same time.
KAP also serves as an advanced training program for future professionals in a variety of disciplines. KAP programming includes: elementary school, middle school, high school and post-secondary participants, including higher education, vocational training, and job support. Their reach is far and wide throughout south central Kentucky.
Our latest helpers were Blair, Travis and Markus, members of the KAP employability group. It’s always a great time getting to interact with these individuals, and watching them learn new skills applicable to the business world.
While we’re discussing Autism and car washes, check out this fantastic video from Rising Tide Car Wash in sunny Florida. Rising Tide was founded by a family affected by autism, and in an effort to empower individuals with this diversity, give them the tools to be elite car wash professionals. It just goes to show that there’s a purpose for all individuals in life, no matter the circumstances.
