Over the past year, Methanex has provided opportunities for young people with disabilities to gain work experience at our facilities in Chile.
To provide these opportunities, Methanex partnered with the Centro de Capacitación Laboral León Humberto Seguel - an organization with more than 23 years of experience providing training and support to young people with disabilities. Youth learn work skills at the Centre, and can now put these into practice at Methanex’s plant under the supervision of Methanex employees.
