Spark Change Curriculum

When you sign up for the Spark Change program, you will receive a web link and a password to access the Spark Change curriculum. You will be given this information after you have turned in your school’s letter of intent and have attended a coach’s orientation, which will explain the five phases to the program and the best way to integrate each phase into the school. All program materials, such as Ziploc bags, bank bags, and leadership pins are provided when you attend the orientation as long as your school’s letter of intent has been turned in.

The user friendly curriculum is packed with lessons, discussions, and activities that incorporate reading, writing, speaking, listening, visual arts, and social studies into your daily class work throughout the school year. All of this prepares students for a day of service.
