Operation Spark's mission is to provide career training courses that prepare low-income, low-opportunity individuals for various levels of employment in the technology sector in the Greater New Orleans area and beyond. Technology is the future and we want to continue to open that door for those who didn't see themselves there. We are raising money to provide scholarships for our Adult Workforce program.
