« Second Class Chance »: Training and insertion of young people in difficulty in hospitality careers.

Chengdu Vocational and Technical College is a provincial technical college specializing in tourism activities, located near Shanghai.

After the Sichuan earthquake in 2008, the Vocational Training College created the “Second Class Chance” to welcome and train in hospitality activities underprivileged young people suffering particularly from the earthquake.

The Accor Foundation* supported the training of 41 young people in difficulty in this program in 2009.

* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
