How to Connect

One of the ways Metro Ministries connects is. . .

Brightwood Community Center 

Metro Ministries, Inc. connects with Brightwood Community Center with a summer youth grant that supports their SPARK program. Metro Ministries connects volunteers, provides leadership development, and is available as a resource.

The Brightwood Community Center Board of Directors knows BCC is much more than just a building: it is a place of creativity, learning, and empowering.

The summer SPARK program equips youth through inspired programming. SPARK stands for Service, Passion, Achievement, Responsibility, and Knowledge. Through SPARK, children receive homework assistance, recognition and celebration for achievements, hot meals, and free books. When Lisa Morris visited this past summer, she saw smiles, laughter, and celebration as they were led by Marian University Summer Learning Institute (SLI) graduate students. 

The Summer Learning Institute commits all its resources to math learning activities. Research on summer learning loss has shown that over one summer, youth can lose up to 2 to 3 months of grade-level math skills. Kids living in low-resource areas are most at risk! SLI serves youth at 15 SYPF-funded sites in Indianapolis. They are fiercely committed to changing the landscape for Indy's kids in need.
