In SPARC's quest to enable collaboration among student environmental leaders at Philly-area campuses, we are now seeking corporate and non-profit partners. SPARC is looking to connect campuses with companies and organizations that can help in their goals to green campuses. These partners stand to gain wide exposure across college campuses that educate over 100,000 students. To find out more, please contact us on our contact page.
