Spark-Y™ empowers youth through hands-on education rooted in sustainability and entrepreneurship.
Spark-Y is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that empowers youth through action-oriented labs focused on sustainability and entrepreneurship. We integrate interdisciplinary curriculum with hands-on agriculture systems, such as aquaponics, mushroom growing, spirulina cultivation, and vermiculture into high-school and K-8 classrooms throughout the Twin Cities metro where we serve over 600 youth annually. Spark-Y also offers a Summer Internship Program during which up to 30 high school and college students are given the chance to become stakeholders in hyper-focused, results-driven projects. A select few of these youth have gone on to become staff members of our organization.
