Dream Coffee, Dream Job

Like many people with intellectual disabilities, Yin Hao dreams of having a good job. But jobs can be hard to find—and job training can also be tough to find. Luckily, there is a visionary special coffee shop, located near Yin's school in Shanghai. It's called The Dream Workshop.

Now, after intense and creative training, Yin and many of his classmates have developed skills to become baristas at the local coffee shop!
