Core Values

Our core values are our north star, guiding Spark’s work and reminding us, even during stressful execution, why we started these initiatives.

Everyone is a founder

Anyone, no matter what, can foster meaningful impact. Anyone can create something from nothing today, regardless of background or experience.

Lead with Farsight

We believe in impact. Our leadership today can heavily influence tomorrow. We make decisions carefully with the future of the community in mind.

Stay Scrappy

We operate within any constraint — whether that be lack of funding, time, or helping hands — and seek out creative ways to execute our ideas.

Wring the Towel

Exploring ideas together, thoroughly and thoughtfully, is our forte. We delve into research and ideation with passion, collaboration, and grit.

We Are Family

In stress and laughter, we stick by each other. We love supporting and being with each other, making working together a privilege, not a chore.

Our members

We have around 40 members that actively drive Spark towards our mission. Beyond working on initiatives, we are a family and a community that supports each other, helping one another learn and grow.
