This year, we are bringing Spark to the Bay Area with a one-day +Spark Summit specifically focused on the intersection between traditional career fields with social values. It can often be daunting to pursue nontraditional paths, particularly when it involves creating and driving change - a substantial process that in itself implies newness and risk. Spark is here to aid aspiring change leaders so that their journeys may create the most impact.

WHy should you attend?
You will bond with other university students who are as socially conscious (and cool) as you are. We invite attendees who display the most interest in creating social and environmental change. This is your chance to genuinely connect with those who will potentially be the most influential change leaders of your generation.
*Shaking with excitement*
You will learn new skills and concepts that will develop your understanding of how you can drive change, be it for the betterment of society or ecology. Asides from your network, you need to know how you can make an impact yourself. We will teach you how to create positive change anywhere you are, and for whoever or whatever it might be.
Network + Knowledge = Power
By learning from current pioneers, connecting with others who also aspire to drive change, and most importantly, gaining skills on how to create change itself, you will propel yourself to new dimensions of impact that you have never before imagined. You will learn, really deeply, how you can become a change leader in Indonesia.
"Jakarta, prepare for takeoff."
