The Luminaries is Candlelighters new teen program whose focus is on increasing positive social interactions amongst teens while building leadership skills. The Luminaries mission is to provide spaces for teens who have experienced cancer and teen siblings to connect, grow and support one another through social connections and service projects. The Luminaries meet monthly to work on service projects or gather together for interactive social outings. Current service projects include developing a social media app to connect teens to one another and creating age-appropriate teen kits for teens in active treatment.
Our teen program is open to any teen that has been diagnosed with cancer or teen sibling and is aged 13-19.
