SPARK CHANGE PROJECT

Empowering Black and Brown Girls to Develop an Agenda and Testify to Local Policy Makers

Our Mission: The Spark Change Project’s mission is to center girls of color as leaders in advocacy, who discover their activist voices and galvanize their peers to engage in their own passions for positive social change.

PROGRAM

The Spark Change Project (SCP) will empower, inspire, and train the next generation of female activists of color. The Excellence and Advancement Foundation and GIRLS empowerment network began this project in 2021 with two successful cohorts to date. SCP will center a small group of girls of color as leaders, who will gain a part-time job, find their own activist voices, and galvanize a wider network of their peers to develop a policy agenda—through the delivery of a special Spark Change Day of advocacy and Spark Change Camp in the summer of 2023. The program will culminate as the Spark Change Girls testify at the 2023 Texas legislative session.

Summer Spark Change “In-Person“ Camp Details

Spark Change Camp, led by the 5 high school Peer Facilitators of the Spark Change Project, will empower 6th-12th grade girls of color* by providing a space for them to gain confidence in their identities. Participants will engage with powerful community leaders, participate in activities focused on leadership and community engagement, and apply newly acquired skills to real service-learning projects. Ultimately, girls will find their activist voices so they can advocate for justice in their own communities

*Although the overall mission of the Spark Change Project is to amplify the voices of Black and Brown girls, this is a gender diverse event that is open to all girls and non-binary folks.”
