QingCongquan Training Center
In April 2017, our colleagues in China continued our involvement with the Shanghai QingCongquan Training Center, which supports the needs of autistic children and their families.
Volunteering for the third consecutive year at the center, 13 American Securities colleagues spent the day with 52 children and their parents. The group participated in a trip to a local park for interactive outdoor activities and a half-day tour of the Shanghai Museum of Glass. The American Securities team also made a monetary contribution to the center to support its programs. Additionally, in June 2017, American Securities’ Shanghai office, in partnership with a U.S. toy company, donated 20 cartons of toys to the QingCongquan Training Center.
Shanghai QingCongquan Training Center for Children with Special Needs was founded in 2004. It is a nonprofit, private organization that provides professional rehabilitation training and coaching to children with autism and their families. Their programs offer professional early-stage rehabilitation training and long-term psychological support to families. They also organize a variety of social welfare and advocacy activities to help autistic children better integrate into society.
Our Giving Back report debuted in 2011 as a testament to how those of us at American Securities, and our portfolio companies, live our value of Giving Back.
