Starbucks, Singapore – opened its 100th store in Singapore at Fullerton Waterboat House on Valentine’s Day, Friday Feb 14.

The global coffee chain have hired 6 clients from the Autism Resource Centre (ARC).

The article in The Straits Times reports that Starbucks have committed to employ ARC clients to form at least a quarter of the staff at the new store.

Starbucks have had an ongoing collaboration with the charity since 2005, in which people with autism are trained and equipped with job skills.

One joint programme last year that was based in ARC’s special education school Pathlight School, was the setting up of a cafe training facility for young people with autism

A student at Pathlight School has designed a tumbler bearing the Starbucks logo and will be sold exclusively at the store. $5 from the sale of each tumbler will go to the Autism Resource Centre.
