I am so thankful for the Sparked Community. The other day they chose to feature lil’ ol’ me in a volunteer spotlight. What I hope you take away from the feature is how incredible Sparked.com is and why you should get involved in microvolunteering, too.
My most recent Sparked challenge centered around creating a flyer to be distributed by counselors to high school students. The flyer was intended to publicize The Connection.
The Connection is a program developed for teenagers focused on education and service opportunities. The Connection will be available to high school teens from the North Denver metro community. Education will reach beyond current academia and will provide instruction on vocational and leisure topics. Service projects will be varied and dependent upon community needs. Projects may consist of reoccurring service to an organization or a single task to someone in need.
The Connection comes at a time when, I believe, it is absolutely needed. With bullying cases making headlines all too frequently, teens need an outlet where they can be who they want to be without fear of repercussion. Not only does The Connection provide this space, but the organization also provides instruction, professional development, and mentorship for local teens. Knowing this, I created the following flyer. I hope teens see from reading it that The Connection has a lot to offer them.
