Search Institute has developed a concept called “sparks”: the interests and passions young people have within them that light a fire in their lives and express the essence of who they are and what they offer to the world. Search Institute research has shown Sparks promote healthy, positive development and contribute to psychological well-being and resilience. Students with sparks engage in fewer risk-taking behaviors. They are less depressed, less worried, and more satisfied with their lives overall.
