Level Up is an after-school program where youth create their future with the support of mentors in a playful, creative community. Participating youth set their own goals for the program and engage with consistent mentors for social-emotional growth and the pursuit of creative aspirations.

Level Up volunteers are known as Mentors and work with a consistent group of 2-3 elementary school students at our Level Up programs. You'll hang out and support students as they work on projects like writing a newspaper article or creating a legend. You don't need to be an expert to be a mentor! However, we welcome our Mentors to add their passions and wisdom to the program.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking every step to make sure our youth, volunteers, and staff are safe. As of October 18th, staff and volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to work with the public at Spark Central. Volunteers may apply for a medical or religious exemption to this requirement. We are following direct recommendations for safety and capacity from the Spokane Regional Health District. More information on our procedures can be found on our COVID-19 Safety Protocol page.

About Spark Central

Location:

1214 W Summit Parkway, SPOKANE, WA 99201, US

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.
