Please note our Spark staff and volunteers will be taking a well-deserved break over the holidays.
We hope you will be too!
For the holiday break, Share the Spark will be closed from the 20th of December thru the 14th of January and we will not be monitoring emails or phone messages over that period.
We recognise that the holidays can be a difficult time for many people. If you need support please reach out to a friend, family member, GP or one of the following services who can help:
Lifeline 13 11 14
Suicide Call Back Service 1300 65 94 67
Kids Helpline (5-25y) 1800 55 1800
NSW Mental Health Line (24/7) 1800 011 511
If life is in immediate danger call 000.
All our micro-mentoring programs are free of charge.
Using our database of volunteers, we match interested young people up with professionals who want to share their knowledge and passion for life.
Head to the Young People or Volunteer pages to sign up using the forms provided. We will add you to our database and then send you an information pack and let you know what opportunities match your needs.
The amount of time you spend is entirely up to you. You can participate only once for a few hours, once a fortnight for a few months, or you can make it a weekly routine.
The first step to finding a sponsor is meeting up. If the professional and the young person decide they want to learn more together it can expand into a longer relationship.
SPARK provides screening and training programs, conversation guides and questionnaires to help passionate professionals navigate the introduction and learning process.
Young people have the opportunity to gain inspiration from multiple occupations in a real life setting, and professionals gain insight and viewpoints from the next generation.
Our young people are offered a wide variety of passionate professionals to ignite their spark for life. They can choose which one they want to work with or they can interact with many different professionals. We will even do our best to recruit professionals in the field of your choice if we do not have it represented already.
Our sole reason for being is to help young people get the support they need to reignite their spark for life. We would not exist if you did not need our help. Here's hoping we go out of business!
Our passionate professionals make the world go round. Their dedication to helping young people find and explore their spark, their reason for living, is what makes us special.
We could not reach out to our youth or train our passionate professionals if you did not help us through your generous donations and support. Our community cares and they show it!
