Bike to the Beach has partnered with Spectrum Design in creating all of B2B’s apparel needs. In addition to creating high-quality products, Spectrum Designs actively offers meaningful employment opportunities to people on the Autistic Spectrum. In fact, 75% of their workforce is made up of people on the spectrum!
The unemployment rate for people on the spectrum is around 90%, meaning only about 10% of individuals on the spectrum are employed. Therefore, Spectrum Designs has made its mission to employ and run vocational training programs to help people on the Spectrum increase their independence.
Today, Spectrum Designs is furthering their mission and expanding to a new building and providing new services, including laundry and gardening!
At Bike to the Beach, our mission is to help the quality of life for people and families with Autism, and because of that, we are proud to support Spectrum Designs with every ride.
