WHAT IS SPARK?
Business leadership membership organization designed for 2-year post-secondary schools (technical and community colleges)
A member of the Commonwealth LeadershipTM Alliance (CLA) – a group of like-minded organizations focusing on providing opportunities for individuals to be better business leaders through the community.
CORE VALUES AND PRACTICES
Teamwork | Curiosity | Care | Trust
With Spark, you’ll attend 3-4 meetings each academic term, which equates to approximately 6-8 hours per month. We’ll provide opportunities for you to engage, be challenged and better yourself.
As a Spark member, we’ll grow with you, at your pace. Following our four-phase paths, members will build in milestones for continuous learning, rather than all at once, to elevate your experience. Spark is meant to be a journey, encouraging personal growth.
Outside of improving your hard and soft skills, Spark can connect members with a lifetime of learning opportunities, as well as access to a community motivated to inspire and assist with your transition and future in the business world.
