Peer tutors from across the continent can connect with each other to improve the peer tutoring programs in their schools.


What they're saying about it:

"What a thrill to witness the peer tutoring "S.P.A.R.K." being fanned to life at New Richmond High School! The S.P.A.R.K. program is fueled with developmental assets and adds immeasurable warmth to the school climate.

It serves as a wonderfully practical example of embedding asset-building deep into a school's culture. Commitment to learning and youth empowerment are ignited! If you are ready to raise academic achievement by using youth as resources, S.P.A.R.K. Peer Tutoring Handbook and Training Manual® created by Kelly Curtis might be just the match!"

"We had an elementary school special ed. student who was acting out every day. Many times I was called to the school to help the counselor and principal place him in time-out. We were all at our wits end. So, we sent a high school student who had been SPARK trained to play basketball with him at the start of the school day. This was in late September and the little guy hasn't had a single time-out since!

This program has saved us time, energy and money by helping to reduce our resources spent on dealing with a difficult situation. Plus, the tutor feels great about his work and the little guy is all smiles!!! Thanks so much."

"The SPARK training program is excellent... I learned a lot of stuff about myself and my strong personal abilities and how I can use those skills to better serve others in the S.P.A.R.K. program."

"Your manual made it possible for us to get a tutor program started with little effort. Thanks a million!"

"I attended the facilitator training and youth training for SPARK, both were very enjoyable and informative. Youth are capable of contributing so much to both the school community and the community at large...they just need to be told that sometimes. SPARK provides an excellent outlet to do just that."
