With Covid, before, and beyond, our national culture is calling for a new social order to balance material and emotional wealth.

Specifically, when 70% of the workforce is dissatisfied (Gallup), Passion Spark, its Retreats, and its new game board, offer a path to increase job satisfaction by "doing what you love, and also earning a good living."

For a quick view of students who consistently achieved success, please see a short videos their personal comments at PassionSpark.org/testimonials. The website also describes a comprehensive view of the program.

We are very interested in meeting students who appreciates the importance of the work of Passion Spark and are willing to share their honest feedback and opinions during occasional panel conversations, facilitated by the Passion Spark director, as well as during one to one conversations, all held remotely over Zoom.

Location:

76 Bonnie Lane, Berkeley, CA 94708, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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
