( Relationship between peer & adult)
3 type of spark

Something you care deeply about.
Quality you know is special, able to solve disputes between friends.
If adult who support your sparks more likely to have ascended of purpose, socially competent & physically healthy.
Use sparks to create serving tearing opportunity.
Sometime there will be a loss of spark but there is always a spark just transformed into a different element.
Tips For Sparks Champions
Spark can change overtime
Young people need multiple champion
A skill is not automatically spark
Service-learning actively engages participants in meaningful and personally relevant service activities.
Service-learning projects work best when they fit the ages and developmental abilities of the participants, include interesting and engaging service activities, explore the context of the underlying societal issues the service addresses, and address needs that are important to the community being served.
Effective service-learning is an integral part of the learning process. It has clear learning goals that are aligned with the school curriculum or purpose of the extracurricular program. Learning becomes experiential and applied, deepening students understanding of the material, how it used, and why it important.
