We're in the business of learning!
The Olio is more than a glass studio. We're a 501(c)3 nonprofit and social enterprise whose mission is to educate and inspire our community through arts, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. We accomplish these goals by offering opportunities for sustainable glass recycling, arts education, and hands-on experiential learning in nonprofit management and business administration. Our apprenticeship program is for ages 14+ who face barriers in our community with the goal of creating a diverse environment for learning arts and entrepreneurship. Thanks to your support, we offer funding for anyone to participate in the program. Here they are empowered to learn arts and entrepreneurship while making a difference in our community through our unique recycling initiative. All of the glass sold at The Olio is made from almost 100% recycled waste glass that is collected locally by our community. Come visit sometime or contact us to learn more about our apprenticeship program and our recycling program.
