Training & Employment for Adults with Developmental Disabilities
Here’s a snapshot of what we do:
Who We Are? Green Street Books is a successful E-Commerce company in San Jose, California, and has been in business for about 12 years. From day one, Green Street Books has employed adults with developmental challenges, more commonly today referred to as ‘Neurodiverse’ or ‘Neurodivergent’ individuals, who conduct most daily tasks associated with our E-Commerce company operations with great success. As of August 2022, one of our employees have been with us over 8 years and counting, plus several others over the 4 year mark.
What We Do? We build partnerships with for-profit organizations where Green Street provides proprietary E-Commerce expertise in selling books, tapes, records, CD’s, DVD’s, sports memorabilia, artwork, Hi-Fi Stereo’s, and other items thus enabling the partner companies to increase their income by as much as 50% or more, versus using traditional in house E-Commerce platform methods.
Green Street Books also has a Vendor/ Seller agreement with the Green Street Works Foundation to sell donations received by the Foundation, and split net revenues after expenses. This enables the Foundation to then use funds to support Training Classes for members of the neurodiverse community, in preparation for potential job opportunities at other E-Commerce businesses in Silicon Valley.
The Neurodiverse Community has an employment rate of a little over 1 person in 10, so what we do to support the Green Street Works Foundation is geared to changing that 1 job at a time.
