I hope you are enjoying some time off and using it wisely at the same time, during the winter break.
I know there are many things to catch up on, but I hope you will also take some time to dive into you spark, help a youth investigate a spark or at least start thinking about one.
A spark is Asset speak for your passion, your hobby, the thing you like to do with your free time. I like to call it the thing that “floats your boat.”
This is a time to help youth discover what their spark is and how they can put it into play.
As we get older, we are automatically led to finding things to regenerate us, feed our spirit and our needs. The thing is sometimes it needs to be taught, guided or in the visual of a spark, the fan flamed to thrive.
If you need some help, I always like to start at the library. Maybe I should have been a librarian. How wonderful to fan the flame of the investigative spirit, educate on a topic, offer a safe place to fall and be able to give it all away for free.
If you are starting with a blank canvas and no clues, ask them a few topics related to topics and begin with a book.
Does the youth like space, robots, dinosaurs, cooking, a sport, photography, art, drawing, music or nature, then start with some old school visual aids.
