Who is this best suited for? I am a {student, professional, expert, business owner} and {looking for new opportunity, trying to figure out my next move, eager to launch my own business} and wonder if this is for me.

Yes. Yes yes yes. The Spark Expedition curriculum was designed to be applicable across various sectors and transitions in life. If you are looking to center your purpose, create more impact, or find ways to make a difference right where you are — this program is for you.

Is this really a trip? When do we leave?

The Spark Expedition currently exists as an online learning experience.

We’re excited to begin exploring options for in-person experiences in the form of one-day workshops, weekend-long intensives, and even multi-day retreats. But for now, you can leave your bags packed and experience the Spark Expedition from the comfort of your own home or favorite coffee shop. (Or, we know it, that lived-in spot on your couch.)

In all seriousness, if you wish to bring the Spark Expedition curriculum to your organization, school, or community, please contact us.

How does this work? If I enroll for the solo or group experience, what can I really expect?

The Spark Expedition curriculum is a six-week intensive course. A few days before your expedition launch date, you will receive an email with a few checklists to help you prepare and get the most out of the curriculum.

Starting on Day One of your expedition, you will get digital access to the Phase One content materials. You will be given approximately two weeks to work through this phase, and right before week three of your expedition, you’ll get access to Phase Two content materials.

What kind of stuff is included each phase?

The Spark Expedition content is grounded in introspection and leads towards action and behavior change. Each phase will include custom tutorials, hands-on exercises, and exploratory activities for you to complete at your own pace. Each phase will culminate in an Expedition Challenge — an artifact that you will be invited to work on and complete as documentation and evidence of your own progress through the expedition experience.

The activities and exercises that are designed to be completed by yourself; however, there will be specific activities that will challenge you to check-in with trusted friends or mentors. If you are going through the group experience, checking-in on these activities will be part of the biweekly group calls.

What can I really expect as a result of going through the expedition?

The Spark Expedition coursework is developed from the best practices of design thinking and human-centered design and introduces relevant models and frameworks to help individuals increase affect and multiply impact.

Expected outcomes from participating in the Spark Expedition include the following:

  • Building resourcefulness for flexible learning

  • Practicing key mindsets for creative problem-solving

  • Leveraging existing opportunities to accelerate personal and professional growth

  • Equipping individuals to take on purpose-driven, impact-orientated work.

I’m interested in the Spark Expedition but not sure what experience to sign-up for. What’s the difference between the solo and group experience?

The Solo expedition is done on your own.  The group expedition is completed in a small group. Since all travelers get access to the same curriculum, the biggest difference is the duration of the expedition and the time commitment required to complete it.

As a solo traveler, you should be finding at least 2 hours per week for solo work. Group travelers will be expected to participate in group calls and provide feedback to their fellow peers, thus they should allow for at least 4 hours per week for group traveling.
