The Sparrow Clubs program provides opportunities for youth to learn that they have the power to make significant change in their communities. Youth begin to understand the needs of the community they live in. They are exposed to problems larger than themselves, and they learn to be part of the solution. Students learn lessons in conscience, compassion, courage, and character as they serve others in need.
The ultimate goal of Sparrow Clubs is to impact youth culture by imprinting compassion, generosity, and integrity on the hearts of kids in schools. Sparrow Clubs believes that compassion can overcome anger, generosity can overcome selfishness, and integrity can overcome apathy. The Sparrow Clubs program compels kids of all ages to look beyond themselves for the sake of others in need – not only the family of a child in medical need, but others throughout our communities.
Many young people struggle with feelings of isolation, loneliness, low self-esteem, and lack of purpose. By focusing on community service, the Sparrow program enables everyone to make a difference, regardless of popularity, economic situation, athleticism, etc. It unites youth in purpose as they work to accomplish a common goal – the welfare of a child in medical need.
