Spark Philadelphia created over 160 transformative apprenticeships in 2013 as Spark's first east coast site. The program is currently based at 3 schools in North and West Philadelphia. With the support and resources of the Wharton Social Impact Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania, Spark Philadelphia aims to achieve ambitious growth goals to impact the city's high school graduation rate. During the pilot program, Spark students explored careers at Comcast, City Hall, and the University of Pennsylvania, in addition to a wide variety of other placements.
