SparkHouse exists to unite and ignite young learners to be powerful ambassadors for and leaders of the national learner-centered movement.

Leadership is Ageless

SparkHouse is a national community of young leaders from learner-centered environments who are committed to transforming education in the United States. Acting as powerful advocates and leaders in the learner-centered movement, these learners are a driving force in the national education conversation.

Voices From Sparkhouse
  • SparkHouse solidified for me that students are ready for education to change, and this new community of learners is done waiting for others to change it for us.

    — Anya, Atlanta, GA
  • Attending SparkHouse allowed me to be surrounded by learners and educators united in a common goal: to revolutionize education.

    — Lexi, Campbellsville, KY
  • A lot of people claim they have the ‘right’ model. Replacing the system with another one won’t work and is dangerous. There needs to be infinite models. The key is variety and options.

    — Alexander, Floyd, VA
  • SparkHouse allowed me to see learner-centered environments from across the country, and it made me excited for the possibilities that can come from this initiative. I can’t wait to see where education goes from here!

    — Danielle (mentor), Pittsburgh, PA
