Create a Culture where Young People Feel Known and Respected.
When caring adults better understand their students, they are more prepared to help students know themselves—and what really motivates them to do their best. Igniting Sparks offers practical yet fun tools to help students tap into their unique talents and interests. Each kit offers age-appropriate lesson plans, posters, and other items that lead students to identify their interests and collaborate with peers in developing their sparks. Students write about their sparks, identify role models, and learn how to connect their aspirations to improving their communities and the world they hope to live in. Best of all, Igniting Sparks integrates technology with students’ aspirations and goals through Spark.A.Vision—the perfect electronic “take away” video that gives students a concrete, engaging reminder of where they can go in life.
