SPARK Volunteer Program

We've created a brand new volunteer recognition program as a way to say thank you for all the time you give. One of the key features is a tiered reward system that lets you "cash-in" on the hours you've volunteered. 

Tier 1:

After volunteering three times, you will receive a SPARK team t-shirt that you can wear at volunteer opportunities.

Tier 2:

After 20 hours of volunteering in a calendar year, you get a t-shirt plus choose one of the following:
