Mama Soup has partnered with the Gersh Academy to provide job training opportunities for select students with autism spectrum and related neurobiological disorders. The Gersh Academy is a special education school headquartered on Long Island with campuses in Glen Oaks, Hauppauge, Huntington and Buffalo. Unlike other autism schools, Gersh is a school where children on the autism spectrum can spend their entire career, from kindergarten through college, in a coordinated learning environment customized to their individual needs.

If you visit the Mama Soup store, you may meet one of our Gersh Student Employees, assisting with tasks that help us run business smoothly everyday. We appreciate all that they do for us and are happy to provide the opportunity for the students to get real world work experience. Learn more about the Gersh Academy by visiting their website here.
