Spark Knows It Takes a Village
We’ re building The Possibility Movement — a growing force of families, mentors, educators, corporate leaders and community members dedicated to unlocking your child’ s potential. We start by showing middle school students what’s possible, and introducing them to new career opportunities and environments. Next, we match them with volunteer mentors at leading companies and fully immerse them in professional settings. And since we know their journeys are only just beginning, we provide the resources and support they need to transition into high school and prepare for success in their future careers.
Opening Windows Into the Future
What happens when we help your child see what they can be? Based on more than a decade of success, we’ve seen the transformative effect Spark has on students’ academic, professional and personal development.
