Thank you Spark!

Cloud & Fire kids threw an awesome luau last week for an amazing group of dedicated volunteers from SPARK!

The group of talented people has organized many fun workshops that highlight different areas of the arts. In the past, the kids have learned about acting, improv games, photography, hip hop dance, drawing, puppetry, scrapbooking, journaling, and magic tricks!

To show them our appreciation, the Cloud and Fire kids put on a luau party. They prepared, cooked, and served a delicious meal. The kids practiced several beautiful Polynesian dances the days leading up to the party and performed them as a gift of thanks at the luau.

After the kids performed their dances, the volunteers were taught how to dance the Hukilau Song. They were asked to put their dancing skills to the test and join them for a last performance! What fun it was for the kids to put on a Spark workshop for them at the party this time around!

Thank you, Spark!

CFM’s YouthBuild Charter School

The Cloud and Fire YouthBuild program is an amazing way for young people to finish high school and learn a trade. Youth can finish school at their own pace while becoming familiar with all the skills needed for a career in construction. The program is open to young men and women of all backgrounds, even those who have been out of school for a long time.

How Does the YouthBuild Charter School Work?

Students attend class for one week and spend the next week on a construction site learning hands-on skills like plumbing, electrical, framing, drywall, roofing, siding, and basic carpentry.  In the classroom, students learn in a small, family style classroom and receive an individualized learning plan that is designed to help them earn a diploma or G.E.D. as quickly as possible. Cloud and Fire partners with John Muir Charter Schools, so this program is fully accredited by the State of California.

Who May Enroll?

Young men and women ages 17-24 who have not finished high school may enroll in the program.  You must have all the materials required for regular school enrollment, such as transcripts from the last school you attended.

Why Cloud and Fire YouthBuild?

Cloud and Fire is like one big family. Youth who have never enjoyed school before will find that the Cloud and Fire YouthBuild program is not like any school they have ever attended.

Other Benefits

YouthBuild students learn leadership skills and are able to participate in many amazing opportunities such as camping, trips to foreign countries, and community development. Trained counselors are on staff to assist with personal problems. Students also receive assistance finding jobs after graduation.
