Become a Sea of Possibilities Partner Today!
By Merrick Egber
After launching the Sea of Possibilities microbusiness in 2020, we are thankful for all the businesses now selling our products in their own gift shops.
The essence of the Sea of Possibilities microbusiness is having a crew of adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities create nautical-themed designs to purchase on our website and at community events. The microbusiness provides opportunities for individuals with ASD to enhance their vocational, financial, and customer service skills.
The organizations and businesses we have partnered with have been thrilled to support Sea of Possibilities powered by Els for Autism®. Owners and employees appreciate the beautiful handmade selections, beachy themes, and attention to detail. Furthermore, they love the concept of a crew of adults with autism and other developmental disabilities being equipped with essential life and vocational skills.
Customers who do business with our partners are impressed that a company or organization is partnering with a microbusiness operated by adults with autism. It is a pipeline for endless possibilities and opportunities for all to share.
Our partners to date:
Lion Country Safari, Loxahatchee, FL
Loggerhead Marine Life Center, Juno Beach, FL
Lucky Shuck, Jupiter, FL
Mounts Botanical Gardens, West Palm Beach, FL
The Seamoon Gift Shop, Surf City, NJ
The Chocolate Spectrum, Jupiter, FL
