In the climate of today's education system, the need to encourage, empower, and expose our youth to new experiences has never been more needed. Every child has a natural interest, a natural gift, a natural SPARK. Whether it is a field trip to the state capital or just a hug and listening ear, it is our responsibility to ignite and foster that spark.

Purple Spark emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the next generation of leaders. We’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of collaboration. Follow the links below to learn more about the Purple Spark Movement.
