Summer Camps at Spark Central are in-person this year! Due to the age of participants, we still encourage masking up in our space, but masks are not required. We are also limiting the max number of participants to ensure social distancing.

About the camp and role as a volunteer:
She Codes is our coding camp focused on empowering girls, non-binary, and transgender kids of any identity and any background between in grades 4-7 where students learn how to code and create their own video games!

Volunteers must go through our orientation before joining us (we will email registration dates and times after signing up). You do not need to be experienced with coding, computers, or video games (but can be helpful). We are looking for compassionate folks who enjoy working with kids and can support the kids in the camp.

Volunteer Commitment: August 2 through August 5; 8:45 - 11:45AM.

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.
