SPARK’s 2016 Career Day

In May, 2016, SPARK held its third annual Career Day at the Roberts Family Branch in Linda Vista.

The kids were able to learn from aviators, computer software programmers, EMTs, financial and health experts, policemen, and even a horse farrier and professional musician! “I enjoyed talking with all of the different professionals about what they do.  It was interesting and inspiring to learn how they choose what they do for a living,” said Malik, a teen member of the Clairemont Branch. He continued, “It was really cool to put on the real gear at the SWAT van. The professionals were so nice to take the time to be with us.

Learning how to shoe a horse, of course. Becoming a part of San Diego’s SWAT team. Join the Navy, see the world. The kids designed their dream...
