Passion Spark seeks a marketing consultant to guide it to bring its prior success in in-person retreats into the online space.
Passion Spark Retreat Workshops have been providing in-person Retreats since 2016, as an outgrowth of work begun by Segue Career Mentors in 2003. A good overview about Passion Spark's impacts, as well as testimonials, can be found at its website, PassionSpark.org.
In brief, with the reality of workplace dissatisfaction at 70%, per Gallup and others, many in our communities experience a level of stress that impacts their physical and mental health. Passion Spark gently guides its participants, step by step, to introspect and connect with an internal knowing of their passion(s), select one, and then match it to a career, and before that to a college major or vocational school, to enable them to, as our summary offers, "do what you love and also earn a good living." Our communities would benefit meaningfully from an increased percentage of such individuals in their midst.
Passion Spark has identified four population segments to serve: 1. High School students considering college or vocational schools, including low SES students 2. College students and college alumni who have not yet found a fitting career or internship 3. Mid-career workers, professionals, and those engaged in vocational careers 4. Senior and retirees interested in re-exploring their life and what they would like to do next.
About Passion Spark Retreats (Segue Career Mentors)
76 Bonnie Lane, Berkeley, CA 94708, US
To guide people to introspect deeply and connect with their passions, choose one, and then match it to a career for a fulfilling life where people self-empower themselves do what they love AND earn a good living.
The history of Passion Spark began with Segue Career Guidance Program, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which shares the same core mission as Segue, "To inform students today to support their career successes tomorrow." Now, under contract to Segue, Passion Spark engages students at a much deeper level and over a substantially greater time period. Specifically, Passion Spark's Retreat Workshops occur over 20 hours, whereas Segue's in-class career speakers presented for just 20 minutes. Passion Spark guides participants to "Do what you love and also earn a good living." It also serves a broader population of participants as described on this website's home page.
The impacts of the Passion Spark Retreat can be seen in the expressions of its participants at these links: http://www.PassionSpark.org/student-voices-video and http://PassionSpark.org/career-experts-and-students
Historically, Segue provided over 90,000 Student Career Exposures (SCEs; one SCE is one exposure to one career option by one live in-class speaker). Segue produced outstanding outcomes as measured by Harvard University and California Lutheran University, as well as by student and teacher testimonials. See the "History" at PassionSpark.org.
Segue was highly regarded in the community, as described in a 4-minute summary video by a Superior Court Judge, and others, as shown at this link: http://www.passionspark.org/segue-video
