The S.P.A.R.K. Teen Mentoring Program curriculum is a 3 Principles based curriculum proven to be effective in helping youth create greater academic success, a healthier state of mind, and a deeper connection with peers, adults, schools and communities. The curriculum is taught through a compilation of 21, highly interactive lessons that Speak to the Promise, Ability and Resilience inside every Kid. Each lesson covers relatable topics that help adolescents navigate the trials and celebrate the accomplishments of their middle and high school years. Through this program, participants will gain a better understanding of themselves and others, develop vital social and emotional skills, access their creative intelligence and cultivate their personal potential.
The S.P.A.R.K. Teen Mentoring curriculum uses age appropriate content and activities that have been proven to effectively reduce risk around high-school drop-out, drug use, bullying, suicide, depression and anxiety, while building resiliency around academic success, social-emotional skills and healthy relationships. This program prepares students for the self-sufficiency and resiliency needed to become successful young adults.
