Young people can change the world.

Spark the Wave helps them do it.

Our Programs

Wave Week

An in-person, five-day immersive service and leadership program with both commuter and residential options.

Ignite Academy

An online week of service, leadership, and fun! Gain service and leadership skills from anywhere while collaborating with fellow participants and Spark the Wave staff.

Change-Maker Challenge

You receive a PDF of service project ideas, and we verify your hours for successfully completed projects!

Here at Spark the Wave, we empower, train, and mentor the next generation of leaders who will impact the world through a lifelong commitment to community service. It is our belief that the young adults who complete our programs will return to their service groups—school, religious, and/or community-based—better prepared to make a greater impact in their communities. This impact will eventually reach far beyond the youth participants of the program. As young leaders with the commitment and skills to turn caring into action, these teens will undoubtedly make positive contributions to their communities for many years to come.
