Spark: Celebrating San Francisco Mentors and Community Happy Hour
Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Join Spark for a Mentor Appreciation Happy Hour in San Francisco, celebrating National Mentoring Month (NMM). NMM recognizes the importance of mentors for young people across the country.
Whether you're a current mentor, a past mentor, or just learning more about becoming a mentor, we invite you to come mingle with staff, board members and community supporters in San Francisco. Spark is excited to start 2013 and our 9th year in the Bay Area, and it's all possible through our mentors and friends. We look forward to honoring our current and past partners, and sharing gratitude and stories.
Hear brief remarks from local leaders, share experiences with fellow mentors or learn how to get yourself or your company involved in mentoring Spark students in 2013. A great way to kick off the new year!
As part of our Mentor Appreciation during National Mentoring Month, Spark will be honoring several special mentors and ambassadors.
Event Speaker and San Francisco District 8 Supervisor Scott Wiener will present awards.
Appetizers and Cash Bar.

When & Where
Spark, a national nonprofit with offices in San Francisco, Redwood City, Oakland, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia, offers a unique program that re-engages middle school students in their education through hands-on apprenticeships and leadership curriculum. Spark partners with schools and workplaces in six cities coast-to-coast to match low-income 7th and 8th graders with mentors working in career fields aligned with the students’ strengths and interests. Spark’s parallel in-school curriculum reinforces the link between classrooms and careers while helping students build skills key to success in the 21st century.
