Let Some Light In

What is DireLights?

DireLights is a student-run business founded in 2017 by students at Central Coast New Tech High School with the help of our teacher, Jennifer Stillittano, and a grant from Real World Scholars. DireLights is meant to engage students in hands-on business learning and to create soy candles for the Central Coast community to purchase. Students are challenged to develop entrepreneurial skills through roles and experience working in marketing, production, design, financials, and human resources within DireLights! DireLights couldn’t thrive without the support and connections of community members, business leaders, and customers. The company is continuing to evolve and grow and we hope you will continue on this journey with us!
