Spark! is the leading youth employment charity working across west London, improving young people’s employment prospects since 2010.

Our vision is of a society in which all young people are ready, equipped, motivated, and able to enter the world of work.

Our mission is to ensure all young people, particularly those who will most benefit, have access to meaningful employer engagement, work readiness skills development, and employment opportunities, enabling them to transition into sustained work and rewarding careers.

We work in partnership with schools and colleges, and alongside a large and diverse range of employers, community partners and funders, to enhance young people’s employability skills, knowledge, experience and access, so that they are better prepared for and able to effectively transition into the workplace and rewarding careers.

We do this by:

  • delivering a diverse range of employer engagement and employment skills development opportunities
  • creating high quality work experience placements and internships
  • brokering and empowering inspiring career mentoring relationships
  • providing access to an online employability and careers portal
  • supporting transitions into work
