Inclusive Space' offers internships, new positions for mentally challenged

By Cai Wenjun

A local charity project, initiated by Shanghai Daily and City News Service, that provides vocational training and internship for mentally impaired students is now offering new positions.

Seven students from the Putuo District Ganlin Junior Vocational and Technical School were interviewed by staff from Marriott International and three of its local hotels on Thursday.

The "Inclusive Space" project was launched in August last year to provide vocational training to students with autism, Down syndrome and other mental or intelligent disabilities to help enhance their social integration and smoothen their transition into the workforce. A batch of coffee shops and hotels has offered training and internships to the mentally disabled.

Four students from the Huangpu District Special Education Vocational School started their four-month internship at Marriott International hotels and have made great progress in their positions.
