AspenPointe provides comprehensive Career and Development Services for adults and adolescents who are disabled or disadvantaged. Based in Colorado Springs with offices throughout the state, AspenPointe Enterprises is a form of social enterprise, a growing movement in which nonprofit organizations leverage the power of business for community benefit. Our programs offer a unique and innovative approach to career and industry training, education, restorative justice-based mediations and transition services.
Since 1991, we have offered creative and entrepreneurial solutions to individuals based on their strengths, skills and abilities, while partnering with local businesses. Our model seeks to serve the whole person, rather than only the disability or disadvantage and strives to not only strengthen individuals, but also our community.
Our goal for employees is to achieve their highest potential while working toward self-sufficiency. Currently, we employ more than 200 people, of which more than 50 percent are disabled or disadvantaged. Unlike traditional, sheltered work settings offered by many vocational programs where 100 percent of the workforce is disabled, our disabled and non-disabled employees work side by side to get the job done.
AspenPointe pays market rate wages and offers an attractive benefits package. Accompanying these paychecks and perks is a sense of pride and status. Consumers are valued for their individual contributions to the business and to the community. Follow this link to search for employment with AspenPointe.
