Igniting possibilities

You have the power to make a student who thought nothing was possible believe anything is possible. That’s the driving force behind Spark’s mentorship program, that matches Middle School students with mentors right in their workplaces.

Spark’s unique approach to mentorship focuses on the student’s experience, on putting them in a place where dreams can be formed from the exposure to this new reality.

When middle schoolers are immersed in the business world we see the world expand before their very eyes. Instead of telling them what they should be, Spark mentors show them what they could be. They meet the students where they are and together go on a journey to ignite the flame for learning and turn an “I can’t” into an “I will.”
