When kids can name and nourish their “spark” – every outcome parents and educators care about changes dramatically. – Peter Benson, Author of Sparks and President of Search Institute
Young people who have identified their “spark” aka strengths, talents and affinities
- have higher grades in school
- have higher attendance in school
- are more likely to be socially competent – less violent
- are more likely to be physically healthy
- are more likely to volunteer to help other people
- are more likely to be good stewards of the earth and its resources
- are more likely to have a sense of hope and purpose
Hope matters! Data shows that as hope increases so does the ability of students to improve academically in the areas of math and reading.
