Program Overview

SPARK is a family-focused kindergarten-readiness program that works collaboratively with families, schools, and the community. Each month, children receive a new book, a lesson activity, and educational supplies, and participate in home- or group-based learning opportunities—all with the goal of increasing the child's success in school and life.
