This café is run entirely by adults with Down syndrome
There is a café where all staffers are people with Down syndrome.
GiGi’s Playhouse Hoffman Estates is a training centre that provides support to individuals with Down syndrome. They begin by studying a variety of subjects including maths, literacy and public speaking. Following completion of the program, students begin an 18-week internship at the café, which acts as a transition period after which they are ready to take a job in the community.
This café is very popular. People say the service is excellent and the atmosphere is very friendly in the café.
