Illuminate

One-of-a-kind candles made by people in need + street adults to celebrate their stories as they rise above poverty.

The idea was simple (and a little crazy): Build a business together to have participants learn and practice the soft skills in a safe, learn-by-doing environment.

The hands-on, learn-by-doing environment provided timely, unplanned but extremely valuable learning opportunities. During production, the team encountered unexpected problems several times that resulted actual, real-life learning opportunities and teaching moments on how to work as a team to solve them.
