Spark the Wave is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation that wants to encourage and empower youth through educational opportunities and programs, to take the lead in meeting the needs of their communities through service. Spark the Wave introduces youth to service leadership concepts in a unique peer-learning environment. The volunteer staff members range from 1 to 20 years in experience of presenting youth programming and more than 75% of our camp staff will be youth. They operate after school seminars and a summer camp that will provide a diverse learning environment in which to educate junior and senior high school students in areas such as leadership development, effective communication, service learning, and project planning. Spark the Wave believes that these young adults will then return to their service groups (school, religious and/or community-based), better prepared to make a greater impact in their community.
