Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1995
This description of Victoria Shocrón's work was prepared when Victoria Shocrón was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
Victoria Shocrón is working, in a non-confrontational way, to integrate young people with disabilities into Argentine society and to educate the Argentine public about people with disabilities. In pursuing those twin goals, she has developed a set of programs, including agreements with progressive employers to train and hire young men and women with Down's Syndrome and other disabilities, and a cable television series that introduces its audience to the true-life stories of disabled youths.
