New this year is a Sparks Fair. A Spark is a special quality, skill or interest that lights us up. When young people know and nurture their Sparks they experience joy and energy. The Sparks Fair is meant to expose young people and adults to a wide variety of activities that could become their Sparks. Sparks Fair participants include David Royce, glass blower, Chef Eli Wollenzien from CRAVE, Selina Rose, hairdresser and the Youth Frontiers staff focusing on leadership.
