World Down Syndrome Day! And STING!
In 2011 the United Nations declared March 21st World Down Syndrome Day and it has been celebrated since 2012. The date was carefully chosen--3/21--the triplification of the 21st Chromosome which leads to Down Syndrome.
Every year, the event raises public awareness and promotes inclusion. It's also a day to celebrate the amazing individuals we know who are living with Down Syndrome--a condition which has always existed and is found in every part of the world.
At Community Vocational Services, Inc. we provide supports and services which help participants learn new skills--including ones which lead to a job and greater inclusion in the community.
Have you heard Sting's new song? He recently released a song in honor of this special day about individuals with Down Syndrome who work--and how one job leads to another. Check it out! And be part of "The Hiring Chain!"
