Bright Endeavors

AromatherapyGiftsHandmade CandlesHome Fragrances

Handmade by the young moms in our paid job training program, each Bright Endeavors candle lights the way toward strong families and bright futures. Our home fragrance and body products make gorgeous gifts with multi-layered impact, bringing beauty not just to individual homes, but to whole communities. As a social enterprise of Chicago nonprofit New Moms, Bright Endeavors engages young moms in our paid job training program where they learn comprehensive skills, gain confidence, and forge career paths. Our executive skills-based curriculum prepares participants for the professional world through classroom training on the social, financial, and technological foundations for a thriving career, and on-the-job training in our growing brand of artisanal products, where they gain an inside view of what it takes to power a small business. 100% of Bright Endeavors proceeds support New Moms’ nonprofit programs for young moms and their kids.
