To Whom it may Concern,

We are seeking a two week unpaid internship/volunteer position for Alex Irvin. Alex is a 14 year old boy with Autism from South East Portland.

We are looking for local businesses, like yours, which Alex regularly frequents, open to supporting his connection to our community. Alex is an intelligent, sociable, and happy young man with a broad skill set. We have had several successes with part time jobs, and are in search of new possibilities.

Alex will be accompanied on site at all times by Jennifer Kapnek, a specialist, fluent in his abilities and challenges.

Alex's skills include, but are not limited to; organization, stocking, and sorting. We are interested in building his strengths in a clearly defined job(s) which can be accomplished in 1-2 hours during the business day, several times each week.

We regard this as an excellent opportunity for everyone involved, and sincerely appreciate your consideration.

Warm regards,

Jill Irvin
