JP SparkPath Challenge Cards


At SparkPath, we’re focused on one thing: helping young people create extraordinary careers. Careers that tap into their most valuable talents. Careers that are truly rewarding. Careers that help them make a unique contribution to the world.

No two individuals share the same talents and aspirations, which is why there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. And in a fast-moving world where tomorrow’s jobs may not even exist today, there are no easy answers. SparkPath takes a personalized approach that goes deeper than other career preparatory options and draws insight from a wide range of interdisciplinary sources. We combine scientific tools and creative processes to help students reach their true potential and align their talents with the needs of tomorrow’s workplace.

SparkPath takes a personalized approach that goes deeper than other career preparatory options.

Choosing an education program and a career path is one of the most important decisions students will make, affecting their financial and emotional well-being for years to come. It’s not something you want to leave up to chance or a quick fix.

Students who leave high school prepared, focused and motivated are more likely to graduate and find meaningful work in their chosen field. And when they know how to promote themselves and anticipate the needs of an evolving workplace, they will continue to outperform and outpace their peers who haven’t had the opportunity to learn these skills. 

Invest in your students' long-term success and happiness.Contact us today to find out how we can help.
