Palisades Provides a "Spark" for Young Students

December 15, 2017

Spark is a national nonprofit that engages communities - like companies and schools - to provide career exploration and self-discovery opportunities that help middle school students understand, experience and pursue what is possible! For 5 months several Palisades employees worked as mentors at the Palisades office in Santa Monica for 7th graders from underserved communities. These weekly sessions were filled with teaching, learning, hard work, trust & skill building, and definitely some fun! The program concluded with the “Share Your Spark” event at Bethune Middle School where students presented their projects to peers and family.
