Our aim is to provide second-level students with valuable life skills that are applicable in third-level education and the world of work.

SparkED was traditionally conducted through in person workshops. However, we now present a virtual sparked programme. Find out more:

Our Project History

SparkED is a student led initiative that was set up in 2017. It was set up by students of the University of Limerick and is part of a larger organisation called Enactus.

Enactus is an international organization that connects students, academic and business leaders through entrepreneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities.

SparkED is working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4, the education goal. It aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” We do this by working with students, especially those from disadvantaged areas, and provide them with the resources to help further their education and improve their career and future prospects.
