About this nonprofit organization
Spark is a growing Bay Area non-profit, developing and operating an innovative new model of youth engagement based around apprenticeships. Through Spark's summer and after-school programs, middle-school students have the opportunity to work side-by-side with a professional in a field of their choice. As students apprentice with designers, lawyers, pilots and other professionals - all in real workplaces - they build social capital, personal confidence, and motivation to succeed academically.
