Our Newsletter: SparkUpdate
make sense of all the information
Each week, we sift through an enormous amount of information to bring together and make sense of highlights across a range of issues you care about.

This week, we bring you a mix of voices and data -- and voices on data.
We kick off the Update with youth development expert Karen Pittman, who shares her thoughts on what it really means to engage a young person and support them in making an impact.
We also spotlight a middle school principal who made an unconventional move to re-engage students in school (hint: it involved choosing arts over security guards and it might have been crazy enough to work).
Also this week: making sense of the new juvenile justice data. Plus, a new blog series launching next week will bring you the voices of youth involved in the Campaign for a Presidential Youth Council, as well as snapshots of existing success stories that make the case for youth input in all levels of policymaking.
The Update will return after the holiday, with Jan, on June 4.
Have a safe and restful Memorial Day, everyone,
-- Alison and the SparkAction team
