Waiakea High School is an Academy school that places students in academies based on their career interests. When students heard about the opportunity to create their own business, they were very excited to participate.
The “Waiakea Candles” team is made up of 5 students from grades 9 & 10 all enrolled in the schools Public Service and Freshman Academy. Their focus was to find a product in which the main components would be locally sourced. The team decided on beeswax candles based on how popular they noticed candles were and that the product is enjoyed by a wide variety of consumers. With little background knowledge of running a business, YEP has challenged, and provided lifelong skills that will continue to positively impact the students of “Waiakea Candles.”
