SparkOpportunity Challenge Seeking Youth-Driven Solutions
"Youth-driven solutions, self-expression, first-hand experience - that's the spirit behind SparkAction's new SparkOpportunity Challenge that will launch on April 12. Jon Bon Jovi, rock star and philanthropist supreme, is helping spread the word about this exciting competition that encourages young people to share their solutions for rebuilding pathways to education and jobs. (Adults allies are invited to compete - with each other - too!) Submit your ideas, vote for your favorites and help spread the word!...
This is a cutting-edge “crowd-sourcing” contest to identify youth-driven solutions to create local jobs and rebuild pathways to education and training.
The Challenge asks young people to turn their ideas and experiences into concrete solutions.
It’s a chance to think big: re-imagine communities, schools and business opportunities and propose visionary solutions to create jobs, build and enhance skills, and improve communities."
