and give them the autonomy they need to make positive choices and make a change in their generation.

The heartbeat of Spark2life  to become a body of cultural architects who can constructively invade secular space to create a different picture

From criminal to CEO…

From a young age Dez Brown was involved in criminal activity. By the age of 18 he had a powerful faith conversion and became a Christian. This conversion began the journey which has led us to where we are today. His shift in morality and perspective birthed his passion for working with people.

This passion has led him to work for 5 years with the homeless; interacting and supporting drug users and those who had fallen through the system and ended up on the streets. His experience and willingness to develop his interpersonal skills, put him forward for various pilots and initiatives that work with those entrenched in homelessness.

This became the springboard Dez needed to get involved in youth ministry in a church in East London, where he developed a strong leadership model empowering young adults to become
"Community Communicators".

Fast forward 13 years to 2006, after leading a dynamic youth ministry for so long and developing a strong sense of community engagement; Dez was approached by a police inspector who recognised within him an ability to share his own experience and relate the consequences of his past to the actions of the youth today.

In 2007 an initiative called Spark2Life was born. The impact that the school sessions Dez had been delivering had caused such a stir amongst the youth that Spark2life won a national Youth Justice Award for ‘Outstanding contribution in tackling youth crime’. Spark2Life began to shape a model around emotional intelligence, emotional literacy and paradigm shifting scenarios.
