Life House, an organization that offers comprehensive services for homeless and street youth in Duluth, is launching its new social enterprise business, Limitless Candles.
Participants from their in-house job skills program, the Legitimate Hustle Program, will be selling candles and providing information at an open house at the Zeitgiest Arts Atrium. After the open house, candles will also be for sale online.
Life House’s job skills program, the Legitimate Hustle Program, was created to provide an employment experience where youth can safely earn money while learning soft skills and other employment skills over the course of a year under the guidance and mentorship of staff. Youth are able to earn $10/hour as they go through a year-long course in entrepreneurship and small business where they learn to create and run a social enterprise with Life House.
Limitless Candles is the first social enterprise created by the Legitimate Hustle Program. It was named to “recognize the unlimited potential of our youth, despite a majority of them having faced great adversities in their life.”
