  • Seventh graders participate in Spark Labs, or on-site workshops, hosted by local companies. Employee volunteers guide students through group activities that build skills and expand awareness of career options.
  • Spark offers High School Pathways and Ninth Grade Support to 8th and 9th grade students so they can take action and feel equipped with the knowledge and resources to make the possibilities they’ve experienced real.
  • Spark connects 7th-grade students with volunteer mentors based on common interests and skills for Workplace-Based Mentorships. Throughout a 13-week partnership, Spark Students and Mentors work together to complete a project related to their career aspirations.
