Seventh graders participate in Spark Labs or on-site workshops hosted by local companies and organizations.
Students develop a broader understanding of industries and careers of all shapes and sizes by visiting different offices and working with new people throughout the fall semester.
Employee volunteers guide students through structured, group activities that build skills and help students understand how their interests, abilities and skills relate to workplaces and positions.
