New Moms’ innovative social enterprise, Bright Endeavors, is a critical component of our Job Training program.

Bright Endeavors exists to provide transitional job training and professional skill development for young moms who are pursuing financial security and economic mobility. Young moms builds core life skills, professional skills, and technical skills through integrated classroom training and on-the-job experience making soy candles. Participants are paid throughout the program and practice their skills in a safe and supportive environment that prepares them for external employment.

We are proud to be part of a nationwide social enterprise movement to transform communities through practical, hands-on employment training. Click here to learn more about employment social enterprises like Bright Endeavors.
