About SPARKy

Our mission is to keep alive the diverse cultural life of rural communities.  

In 2016, SPARKy produced an original play  THE HISPANIC WOMEN'S PROJECT. We told  stories of Latinas in our region.

 

The play was so successful and the community so moved to help that SPARKy created THE SPARK LATINA SCHOLARSHIP FUND to send young Latinas to college.

SPARKy was indebted to the women whose stories we told.  So much so that we made a promise to them that we would raise money for the fund.

To date through the fund we have sent seven girls to college.  We have two graduates and currently have three girls in college.   We also have The SPARK Latina Club which goes into local schools and helps young girls 9th-12th grade prepare for college and life after high school.

 

We welcome your support.  For more information please contact
