Through the SPARK Program, local youth are given the opportunity to make a positive impact on the training and development of their future in the workforce.
SPARK is dedicated to helping local youth (ages 14 to 24) meet educational, professional, and personal goals.
Some of our services include:

Through the SPARK Work Experience Program, local businesses are given the opportunity to make a positive impact on the training and development of future generations in the workforce.
Dedicated SPARK Employment Specialists work closely with Work Site Managers to assist in providing our Youth with on-the-job training and development that benefits both the client and the business.
The SPARK Program provides the wages and liability coverage necessary for the Youth to gain skills and valuable work experience through your mentorship and business environment.

"They helped me figure out what I wanted to do. When they presented the job that I have now, at first, I wasn't sure I was going to love it. I am making a difference in the world while doing it from home. I get to spend time with my family while at the same time working."
