Sparks High School Mentoring

Sparks is a team mentoring program that meets at J.R. Rogers High School once per week. Sparks fosters a safe and supportive environment for youth through positive relationships where strengths are explored. Youth build social, emotional, and academic skills through inclusive and intentional programming which emphasizes college and career exploration, and leadership development. Sparks mentors attend programming on Wednesdays from 2:30-4:30 pm, and will participate in enrichment activities on campus once per semester.

Sparks is a year-long commitment for GU students. We strongly encourage mentors to consider committing to the program for longer than one year, but this is not a requirement. 

If you have any questions, we encourage you to visit us in the Hemmingson Center (Suite 010) or contact Jen Palm at 509-313-6486 or
