New Moms’ innovative social enterprise, Bright Endeavors, is a critical component of our Job Training program and exists to provide transitional job training and professional skill development for young moms who are working to build strong families.
Young moms engage in 16 weeks of intensive workforce development training that builds core life skills, professional skills, and technical skills through integrated classroom training and hands-on job experience making soy candles at Bright Endeavors’ manufacturing facility. Young moms are paid an hourly wage throughout the program and practice their skills in a safe and supportive environment that prepares them for external employment.
