Bright Endeavors Boilerplate — DO NOT DELETE

Bright Endeavors is an innovative non-profit with a mission to guide young mothers to economic stability. The mothers learn to make hand-crafted soy candles using natural botanicals and reclaimed glass. They are also acquiring much more than knowledge. They are in partnership with New Moms Inc., where they receive housing, outreach, and life-style coaching to make positive life changes that lead to brighter futures for themselves and their children. Jasmine is one of those shining success stories. "I became a mom at the age of 16. I didn't know much about the struggles I was going to face, but I made a promise to myself and my 3-year-old son that I would try, no matter what." She joined the employment training program and gained on-the-job experience at Bright Endeavors, where she saw potential in herself she'd never seen before. For the first time, she says, a career felt possible. "I went back to school and moved into my first apartment. I was fulfilling my promise... I felt hopeful about my future."

Now married with a second child, she is working a permanent job as Production Team Lead at Bright Endeavors. Jasmine is a leader for other young moms and, "on a mission to keep striving to exceed expectations!" Bright Endeavors and New Moms have helped over 3,000 moms like Jasmine over the past 30 years, with countless lives changed for the better.
