Spark the Wave is an active partner in the community working with various youth groups, schools, and nonprofit organizations to provide leadership and volunteer training to teenagers. Our service seminars combine a unique blend of hands-on activities, small group discussion, and collaborative focus, providing students with the skills they need to be successful community leaders.
We have used Spark the Wave for a few years to conduct our peer mediation training. I have been impressed with the team’s ability to teach important issues in a way that really stays with our students. The training was fun, highly interactive and definitely worthwhile. We plan to continue to rely on Spark the Wave to help us in developing leadership in our students.
Our Teen Girl Scouts were working on their Program Aid certification and we hired STW to teach our group of 55 teen girls communication skills. STW lead various hands on activities that helped the girls understand that people see, hear and learn differently. During our year end review, many of the girls asked if we could bring back STW for future workshops. We found this organization to be easy to work with, organized and very good at what they do as well as reasonably priced!
DeMatha Catholic High School has been using Spark the Wave for the past 3 years, to work with our rising juniors and seniors for our Big Brother Orientation and Leadership Institute. Dr. Gallagher is wonderful at selecting the activities that have the best impact on our students and they respond with enthusiasm. We change the program a little every year and STW changes with us, always flexible, always giving 100%. Our program would not be what it is today without STW and Dr. Gallagher..
