The evening celebrates the students, presenters, and community and school partners who made the 2018-2019 Social Innovators Academy programs a success. The 2018-2019 Social Innovators Academy class has been the largest yet, with students from 26 schools inside and outside the perimeter and has an unparalleled power to create impactful ripples of change in their communities.

Enjoy cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres while you hear from students about their passion and the work they are doing in their communities. Select students will participate in a poster session, where they will share about their projects with family, peers, and potential supporters. Brief student presentations, and awards to recognize exceptional partners, to follow cocktail hour.

Our Sparks event is our opportunity to share our students’ stories, thank our community partners, and build a network of supporters for our work! Come meet our students and hear more about the amazing work they are doing.
