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.

SPARK Summer | Grades 6-8
Our SPARK Summer for junior high introduces young teens to a variety of outdoor and recreational activities. We want them to try new things, in hopes they'll find an activity they love and want to continue on with. The poster at the left lists the activities we are trying out this year.
Eligibility: Youth currently in grades 6-8.
Schedule: Youth will be placed in 1 of 4 possible sessions:
June AM: Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday, 9a-12p, June 12-28.
June PM: Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday, 1:30-4:30p, June 12-28.
July AM: Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday, 9a-12p, July 10-26.
July PM: Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday, 1:30-4:30p, July 10-26.
How to register: Follow the referral link below. Parent/guardian will rank sessions by preference. When we have rosters made, we will send a confirmation email that says which session your teen has been placed in, and it will ask for health and safety info.
**PLEASE NOTE: The program is currently full. You may still refer your child; they will be added to the waitlist, and we will contact you if/when a spot becomes available.
