Spark Inside helps young people in the criminal justice system to proactively create fulfilling and productive futures through life coaching.
is an innovative start-up charity providing life coaching to young people
transitioning out of juvenile custody, empowering them to discover their
passions, take responsibility for their own lives and strive to reach their
potential. Life coaching is strongly distinct from mentoring: “coachees”
set and reach personal goals through self-reflection rather than advice,
guidance or counseling. Spark Inside is adapting a proven model from Canada,
where life coaching drastically reduced the offending behaviour of formerly
prolific young offenders. Spark Inside’s pilot commenced in January 2013.
