Since 2010, SPARK has been training girls between 13 and 22 to be activists, organizers, and leaders in the fight against the sexualization of girls. Our team of girl activists has been growing steadily–from fewer than 10 activists in 2010 to 31 in 2013–and together, we’ve been achieving more and more! SPARK’s work is critical not only to the girls on the SPARKteam, but to our media culture at large. As the 2013-2014 SPARKteam, we’re making waves in every arena–and our current action is to raise money for our training retreat this August, where we can plot and plan for next year. Here’s just a sample of what we’ve done in the past year:

And in 2014, we’re on track to do even more! With your support, we can take the SPARKteam even further–expanding our reach, our power, and the voices of girls. Here’s what some of us want you to know about our experiences with SPARK:

“SPARK has helped me to grow in confidence and as a person and has encouraged me to think about how I can help to change the world for the better. I know SPARK will be able to engage many other girls just like they did me.” — Georgia Luckhurst, SPARKteam activist since 2012

“I love SPARK. The girls that I work with are diverse, welcoming, and brilliant visionaries who have supported me as an activist, a writer, and just in general. We are making the world a better place for women and girls through our dedication, honesty, and passion. SPARK has done, is doing, and will continue to do amazing things.” — Sam Holmes, SPARKteam activist since 2013

“Working with SPARK has been a life-changing experience for me. I’ve been empowered to write about issues that matter to me personally and affect the girls of the world. Writing for SPARK has taught me to use my words to create change, and our retreat built a community of brave young feminists who are working together to make the world better for everyone–including you!” — Anya Josephs, SPARKteam activist since 2012

“SPARK has given me an outlet for my voice, priceless opportunities, and extraordinary friendships. I can’t wait to do it all over again. I never considered myself an activist before SPARK, but now I know how to be the change I wish to see in the world, I can take that with me throughout my life.” — Montgomery Jones, SPARKteam activist since 2013

SPARK’s actions and programs rely on the generosity of individual donors. Without you, we can’t continue our transformative work. Please join us in building a world where girls’ voices are elevated and celebrated!
