Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide and support youth with resources to develop STEAM skills in an inclusive environment, for the future. We do this by hosting events and providing opportunities for students in the GTA and beyond!

Our story


The idea behind SPARK started in 2018 when a small group of students from FRC Team 4939 in Brampton, Ontario wanted to create an educational and engaging community for students where they could showcase their skills, learn, and network with others. Since then, SPARK has grown into a youth-led non-profit organization representing all middle school and high school students in the Greater Toronto Area through our hackathon events.

Our events are geared towards innovation and sustainability as demonstrated by our Space Exploration and Smart Cities hackathons which pushed students to think outside of the box. Our team believes that presenting real-world problems to students from a young age will make them better leaders of tomorrow.

SPARK has built significant relationships with community businesses and startups along with its recognition by the City of Brampton. Our goal at SPARK is to ignite a sense of passion and leadership in the student community while providing them with educational and enjoyable opportunities.
