Charity description

Spark+Mettle logo
A youth aspirations charity that likes to help people flourish.

Spark+Mettle connects at-risk youth with the ideas, tools and people to get them to where they want to go. Our vision is to build character strengths such as spark, mettle and creativity at scale for millions of young people.

We run personal and professional development programmes and networking events. And we're behind Discoverbables, a free
online platform that enables young people to identify, develop and showcase their top character strengths and soft skills to future employers.

We co-create everything we do with the young people we serve to make sure it's aligned with what they need.

Richard Layard—LSE professor and the godfather of happiness economics—said that Spark+Mettle is “a great idea.”

Dave Eggers—writer and co-founder of 826 Valencia—says we’re doing “important work with humble hearts and fierce dedication.”

Whatever you can give, you can be sure we'll use it wisely to enable marginalised young people to fulfil their potential and get to where they deserve to go.
