Spark Central is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to ignite the creativity, innovation, and imagination necessary for people to forge the path to their best future. Building on the railyard roots of Spokane’s West Central neighborhood, Spark Central is the junction between where people are and where they want to go. We offer resources, connection, support, and learning to those who need it most on their journey to a better future.
Although we serve all members of the Spokane community, we focus first and foremost on providing access to education, literacy, and creative learning opportunities to the West Central community and other Spokane residents who experience access barriers to the resources we provide. Our innovative programs develop the ability to problem-solve and think critically—skills critical to success in the Information Age, where the jobs of tomorrow haven’t been created yet. From learning to code to learning to write a story, we offer community members a one-way ticket to discovering their passion, building new skills, and growing the confidence needed for wherever they want to go.
