Spark Central 1

Level Up is an after school mentorship and activity program that will be offered beginning Fall 2020 at Spark Central to West Central students in grades 3-6. The program will be grounded in the goals of Social Emotional Learning (SEL), and will include a dynamic schedule that provides students with mentorship, homework support, engaging STEAM and arts club activities, and community.

As a mentor with the Level Up after school program, you will work with a consistent small group of 2-3 students two days a week to offer homework support, help us foster a safe and welcoming community, and work with students during club activities in robotics, art, writing, and coding as part of the after school schedule. You don’t need to be an expert in school subjects to be a mentor with this program!

Volunteer Commitment:
Tuesday & Thursday 2:30 - 5PM, or Wednesday & Friday, 2:30 - 5 PM; September through mid-December

Mission Statement

Igniting the creativity, innovation, and imagination necessary for people to forge the path to their best future.

Description

Welcome aboard!

Spark Central is a creative learning center where people of all ages can access our high-speed Internet (1,000 Mbps), technology, rich and imaginative programming, and curated book and media collection. Building on the West Central neighborhood's rail yard roots, Spark Central is at the junction between where people are, and where they want to go. We offer resources, connection, support, and learning to those who need it most on their journey to a better future.

We foster creativity for adults, teens, and kids by providing learning experiences that explore the unlikely intersections between subjects, such as poetry and science or coding and character creation. Such experiences stretch the imagination, are the root of innovation, and develop the ability to problem-solve and think critically-skills essential to success in the Information Age, where the jobs of tomorrow haven’t been created yet. From learning to code to learning to write a story, we offer community members a one-way ticket to discovering their passion, building new skills, and growing the confidence needed for wherever they want to go.

Thanks to many generous donors, we are able to offer access to our resources and many of our programs at no charge and keep adult workshops affordable. Kids programs are always available at no cost because we believe that all children, regardless of income, deserve the chance to be imaginative, to play, and to find their inner genius.
