Since 2013, I have served on the board of Spark Bay Area, an organization that provides life-changing apprenticeships to underserved youth in the Bay Area. Facebook team members will collectively have volunteered over 400 hours to mentor seventh and eighth grade students by the end of this year!
Spark intervenes where few others do—in middle school. Students visit their mentors at work for two hours a week and learn what their future jobs are really like. We know that if we get students to reach 9th grade on track, they are 4x more likely to graduate. We need your help to do this.
By 2020, Spark Bay Area's goal is to impact more students in more districts through more mentors and corporate partnerships.
Would you consider making a donation today to help fuel the growth of this program?
