We have an engaged group of Certified SPARK Facilitators who are bringing this program into their community and schools, and we are thrilled that the SPARK Mentoring Curricula are now being taught in classrooms around the US, the UK, and beyond. 

If you’re an educator and would like to #ShareTheSpark in a meaningful way, then our training programs can provide you with everything you need to deliver our curricula with confidence. 

We train Certified SPARK Facilitators both in-person and online, so no matter where you are in the world, you can help children and youth find their SPARK.

    All in all, very interesting and motivational. I haven’t written that many notes since high school! There was so much inspiration and small insights popping in during these days, I wanted to keep them! I can’t wait to start, even though I also understood how much I still have to learn! Thank you very much!”

    I am confident that this training is a BLAST in person. Due to COVID-19 our training was online and our SPARK hosts did an excellent job of adapting to this. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable my hosts were. Thank you all.
