Spark Program, Inc.

Spark's mission is to create life-changing apprenticeships for youth from underserved communities across the U.S. Since launching in Redwood City, CA in 2004, Spark has grown to build bridges between classrooms, communities, and careers nationwide. Ultimately, Spark aims to make apprenticeships an available, effective tool for motivating students to stay on track toward academic and career success.
Empowering apprenticeships for middle schoolers
The 21st century job market demands core credentials, from college diplomas to critical thinking. But too many U.S. youth lack opportunities to succeed. Up to 20% don't complete high school. Spark creates hands-on apprenticeships that bring underserved middle school students out of the classroom and into the workplace for individualized mentoring that results in educational success and powerful career ambitions. 92% of Spark alumni have completed or are on track to complete high school on time. project reportread updates from the field
