Today’s youth graduate into a world with fewer boundaries and greater opportunities for interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds and perspectives than ever before. The Global Youth Citizenship SPARK Club is for youth in 6th – 12th grades that are looking to develop their international thinking skills, gain a sense of self, and exhibit social responsibility. The club meetings will focus on lessons organized into four phases of building cultural knowledge and skills. Those four phases include Exploring, Stretching, Challenging, and Connections.
The club will meet six times during late spring and early summer in the West Exhibit Hall at the Jasper County Fairgrounds. The meetings will be an hour long beginning at 6:30 pm CST and the meeting dates are:
April 12th April 26th May 17th
June 1st June 17th June 29th
Enrollment in the club is limited to the first 20 youth to complete the enrollment process.
