What You'll Get
Candles are the third best means of lighting a room during an outage, right behind waiting for dawn and hosting the opening ceremonies for an international athletic event. Carry the torch for illumination with this Grassroots campaign: for $15, you get $30 worth of eco-friendly home and bath products from Bright Endeavors.
A social enterprise of New Moms, Inc., Bright Endeavors provides job experience for adolescent parents to help them transition to self-sufficiency. As part of a job-training program, adolescent parents aged 17¬–24 manufacture and market home and bath products for sale on the website. Working in the manufacturing and marketing positions gives them on-the-job experience to help them transition into economic stability.
Bright Endeavors uses vegetable waxes, natural botanicals, and reclaimed and recycled glass to create their eco-friendly products, which are handmade and packaged by program participants. Items found on their online shop include soy candles in recycled ginger-ale bottles ($15), Dead Sea bath salts ($8), and a Love basket filled with relaxing bath products ($22).
Adolescent parents begin the Bright Endeavors practicum with four weeks of classroom training to learn career-readiness skills. They gain work experience in manufacturing, inventory, marketing, and customer service, and fulfill daily production goals by creating quality, eco-friendly products to develop accountability and achievement. Weekly book-club meetings promote self-reflection and literacy development, while the nurturing work environment increases their self-esteem and leadership potential.
