Employment provides a sense of purpose, value, and full participation in the community for us all. For the hundreds of adults with developmental disabilities in Boulder County, these are aspirations that are far too often inaccessible. Boulder Treasures’ mission is to create pathways to meaningful employment for adults with developmental disabilities by operating an Apprenticeship Program at Ramble on Pearl, a retail store established, designed and staffed specifically for this purpose. We opened Ramble on Pearl in August of 2014 and our Apprenticeship Program in September of 2014.
Boulder Treasures needs your help to address these long unmet needs. Our unique approach is built on proven strategies with a Boulder twist, and with your help, we can establish Boulder as a leader in this field. Our social enterprise business model is based on long-term financial self-sufficiency, but requires startup capital to complete the launch of Ramble on Pearl and our Apprenticeship Program. Once our retail sales grow enough to cover all of our operating expenses, no further donations will be required and Boulder Treasures will be financially self-sufficient. 100% of the profits from Ramble on Pearl will then fund the mission of Boulder Treasures’ Apprenticeship Program. With your donation today, Boulder Treasures can create a whole new pathway to employment for adults with developmental disabilities. Thank you for your support!
Another way to support our apprenticeship program is by shopping through AmazonSmile. We know that Ramble on Pearl may not have everything on your shopping list, so when you shop on Amazon, share a smile and shop with AmazonSmile! 0.5% of your purchases will then be donated directly to Boulder Treasures, our parent nonprofit.
