In resistance to anti-trans legislation being authored and signed into law in the State of Iowa, United Action for Youth will continue to affirm and advocate for our community's trans and LGBTQ+ youth. For a list of transgender and nonbinary resources, please visit OneIowa's resource page: https://oneiowa.org/transresources/ and the other resources below.
Overview: SPARK! programming provides active engagement for youth to help them find their passion. We provide positive interaction and safe spaces for youth wanting to explore new activities, form new friendships, and create memorable experiences.
Eligibility: Youth 12-18 yrs. old. We prioritize youth facing barriers to participation in activities that spark their interest (e.g. youth of color, LGBTQ+, and/or low socioeconomic status).
Get involved: See "Upcoming activities" below and click "Sign Up!" to register. (Programs that are currently full will direct you to an optional waitlist.)
Our Spring 2023 activities are full and concluded for the season. Our summer programming can be viewed by clicking on the links below. For more information or with questions, please fill out the 'Get in touch with SPARK' form at the bottom of this page.
