What is SPARK?
In a nutshell...Spark is a community project that seeks to strengthen the creative economy of the Northeast Kingdom by providing students, entrepreneurs, and small businesses with access to technology, resources, education, and each other.
SPARK is an incubator space designed to provide resources of all kinds to inquisitive minds; be it students or teachers, young and old. SPARK is the culmination of efforts from many corners of the Northeast Kingdom and aims to address three main concerns: access to technology, education and economic development opportunities.
SPARK brings people of all ages and abilities together to collaborate and build upon innovations, expertise, community and wisdom. It enables individuals to gain competitive workforce skills and aid in building economic resilience throughout the region.
