Bright Endeavors transforms the lives of young moms in Chicago by teaching them to craft premium soy candles in a supportive, professional environment. Your purchase creates training and employment for at-risk moms and helps illuminate the path toward a brighter future.
Every mom wants to provide a safe and loving home for her child. Unfortunately, for a young mom battling homelessness and poverty, that home can feel out of reach. In most cases, these women are living in low-income communities without access to quality education or job opportunities. Under these circumstances, the barriers to an empowered life filled with hope and opportunity can be overwhelming. Through its paid 16-week job training program, Bright Endeavors provides the guidance and job skills young moms need to secure quality employment and begin working toward professional success. Participants are coached in preparing for interviews, crafting resumes, working effectively on a team, and more. Supporting these women touches two generations at once: the emerging life of a young mom and the unwritten story of her child. A training program of Chicago's New Moms community organization, Bright Endeavors currently employs around 30 women.
