SparkED is a youth leadership programme that empowers young people by teaching them valuable life skills. Our online platform allows the students to access all our workshops and extra resources remotely. Students will be able to complete interactive workshops on our website sparked.ie, in areas such as CV Skills, Presentation Skills, Interview Skills, Time Management and Study skills, Computer/ IT Skills and Volunteering.
Our programme includes:
● Access to all pre-recorded workshops and resources through creation of a personal account
● Access to multiple zoom live workshops throughout the year
● Access to our expanding career guidance section which includes college course guides from college students, career advice, videos from professionals in different careers, Leaving Cert subject guides and ‘how to’ guides
● Interactive segments for the students including feedback on their CV
We hope to give a fresh, student perspective on life after secondary school. SparkED is coordinated by college students volunteering with Enactus UL, which is a social entrepreneurship society based in the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick.
The programme costs just 5 euro per student. We have also partnered with Uber this year to sponsor DEIS schools to receive our programme free of charge.
