SPARKS is a one-day student planned professional development conference in partnership with the Arizona State University Parks and Recreation Student Association (PRSA), and the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association.
SPARKS is a great opportunity to bring students, young professionals and professionals together and learn through speakers, educational sessions, networking, and socials. This event seeks to “SPARK” interests, ideas, and connections among students and professionals in parks and recreation.
SPARKS provides an opportunity to connect and engage with current dedicated students, i.e. potential volunteers, interns, and staff that are already demonstrating a commitment to their future profession. It allows students to learn from experienced professionals and explore opportunities in their area of interest as well as in areas they may be less familiar with. Students will find out what networking is all about and how to best utilize their time and resources during their SPARKS experience.
Professionals will be paired with a few students to interact and network throughout the day.
