Spark the Wave: Youth Leadership Institute, July 2020
Posted by Spark the Wave on February 11, 2020
WE EMPOWER, TRAIN & MENTOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS WHO WILL IMPACT THE WORLD THROUGH A LIFELONG COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY SERVICE
Every year, thousands of teens perform millions of hours of service.
Few of these youths receive any specialized training that could improve their ability to make a greater impact in the community. It is our belief that the young adults who complete our programs will return to their service groups—school, religious, and/or community-based—better prepared to make a greater impact in their communities. This impact will eventually reach far beyond the youth participants of the program.
As young leaders with the commitment and skills to turn caring into action, these teens will undoubtedly make positive contributions to their communities for many years to come.
Spark the Wave has proudly trained over 20,000 teens, who in turn have impacted hundreds of thousands of community members.
Early registration is open for Wave Week 2020, July 13-17 & 27-31. Residential (Grades 6 – 11), Commuter (Grades 4 – 11), & Day of Service Options. Earn 40 service hours in less than a week.
