Welcome to SPARC Poetry’s first crowd funding campaign! Our mission is to help kids become comfortable with public speaking, become proficient in writing, and active in critically thinking about the world they live in. While not everyone is a poet, the basics of slam poetry is a building block for success.
Founded during the recession of 2008, SPARC has scaled as a grassroots effort serving one classroom of 30 students to reaching more than 900 students weekly this year. We are a small but mighty team of individuals dedicated to teaching kids to both write and perform. Your gift of any amount today will help us continue to positively impact the lives of underserved youth in Pacifica, Oakland, Hayward, and beyond.
