THE STORY:

In middle school I was fortunate enough to have access to quite a few motivated, caring adults - people who could relate to my experience, who cared about my choices and who made me feel like I was worthy of their time. The impact of these relationships was huge. Not only did these people show me what might be possible for my future, but they gave me the confidence to dream big and take risks. I'm sure we can all remember the adults who influenced us and helped shape our choices. 

Spark has taken a creative approach to building individualized connections like these for underserved middle school students in the Bay Area and across the country. In my time working with Spark, I saw hundreds of bright, curious kids go through the apprenticeship experience, and the gains in maturity, confidence and creativity were immeasurable. This opportunity truly helps build the skills and motivation needed to be successful in high school and the years beyond.

It is because of this tangible impact on deserving kids that I've stayed connected with Spark and that I hope you'll consider making a contribution to help this great organization continue to grow and serve more students each year.
