The Program

Red Cross Volunteer for Our Students

Our Mission

We have established Spark Global Philanthropy Canada (Spark) to promote and teach strategic philanthropic practices that empower youth to understand and navigate charity (registration #858558919 RR0001).
Spark assembles groups of highly motivated students ranging from elementary school to post-secondary universities, who share the common objective of enhancing society. It provides them with unique experiences and unimaginable access to some of the world’s top leaders and philanthropists: President Clinton, Michelle Obama, Amed Khan, David Foster, Princess Salimah Aga Khan, Petra Nemcova, Stuart Weitzman, Chip Wilson, Ross Beaty, Frank Giustra, Joe Segal, etc.
The Spark program is immensely beneficial to students pursuing higher education at renowned institutions worldwide. It is a significant commitment on their part to enhance both themselves and society. Spark students go beyond volunteering and engage in a lifelong dedication to philanthropy and creating change.
Spark’s philanthropy program has now been implemented as a full-credit course at the University of British Columbia, Sauder School of Business. This marks the first course on philanthropy to be taught at UBC and a major step in Spark’s objective of implementing a curriculum of philanthropy in schools and institutions across Canada.

Nihilne te nocturnum praesidium Palati, nihil urbis vigiliae. Non equidem invideo, miror magis posuere velit aliquet. Qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur. Prima luce, cum quibus mons aliud consensu ab eo. Petierunt uti sibi concilium totius Galliae in diem certam indicere.
