On June 19, girls from Girls Inc. of Metro Denver cut the ribbon to their brand new Strong, Smart & Bold Beans mobile coffee truck.
Bold Beans is a girl-voiced, girl-run, girl-led coffee business, and it gives teen girls an opportunity to explore entrepreneurship, gain tangible life-skills, and it sets them up for long-term economic independence. The mobile truck is a brand new addition to this business that came into existence with the support of Mile High United Way’s Women United Initiative.
