At the Adult Program, we want our students to be active members of the community, and work is both an integral part of adult life and a significant contributor to learning new skills. To create more opportunities for appropriate training and employment of all our students at the program, PALS social enterprise has established a candle making business. This venture supports the young adults in building work skills and independence while overcoming workplace barriers. We are in the early stages of developing our social enterprise, but moving actively towards further growth.
Every student is involved in the production of the candles, and every step of the crafting process is carried out by them, from unpacking inventory, placing wicks and oils, to labelling and packaging. The students are able to gain a variety of vocational skills as they put in the hard work to produce these quality products.
Our candles come in four signature scents: Eucalyptus, Lavender, Vanilla and Lemongrass. We also offer beautifully packaged gift sets which contain one of each of our signature scents.
PALS candles come with the following features:
- 6oz with 20 hours of burn time
- 100% soy wax with cotton wicks
- Pure essential and fragrance oils
- Petroleum-free and clean burning
