Our Process

Professional Training

During our apprenticeships, we work with young designers to polish their design skill and provide them with partner focused professional development.

 

Social Impact Focus

We work with global change makers to attack social problems and design solutions that will benefit communities across the globe. We aim to build long term relationships with our partners as we invest in their missions.

Measuring Success

To measure the success of our work and client communication, we document all of our partner projects through a blog-style process book, highlighting the start and finish of each project as well as a 6-month follow up with partners.

 

Registration is now open for the Spark Curriculum educator workshop!

The Spark Curriculum Workshop is a 3 day event in design thinking that allows educators to bring design and innovation into their classrooms. Our curriculum contains project based modules and activities that are tailored to fit different lengths of time, and different learners ranging from 3rd – 8th grade. With easy to understand tools and methodologies, our curriculum is easily accessible to anyone regardless of their personal exposure to design and design thinking.



Summer Beta Program

In the summer 2015, Spark Corps welcomed it's first class of corps members by running an 8 week beta program of the Spark Corps model. Lessons learned from this program have helped refine the apprenticeship, and allow young designers to polish their design skills in professional, real-world environments. During the beta program, Orange Sparkle Ball shadowed Allie Miller and Grace Cha to document their experience.
