CareerSpark 2021

Become an Industry Partner

Why should you become a partner?

CareerSpark provides an invaluable opportunity for you and your company to make a lasting impact on the lives of students in Greater Peoria. Last year, over 5500 eighth grade students from 62 different schools attended the first virtual CareerSpark expo!

That event was made possible through the generous participation of companies involved in high-demand industries in our region such as healthcare, manufacturing, and agriculture. Continuing our work virtually again this year, we’re striving for even more engagement, not only from students and educators but local business organizations as well.

Sign-Up Form

Interested in becoming an industry partner? Industry partners participate in the event with no fiscal obligations, only acting as volunteer experts in their fields and content curators. We invite you to fill out this form. If you have trouble accessing the form, contact Kari Rauh at

Sponsorship Levels

Want to become a CareerSpark sponsor? During our high school pilot program, you will have the opportunity to promote your brand and job openings within your company. Your generous contributions help make it possible for all of Greater Peoria’s youth to participate in career exploration free of charge.

Here you can find our investor brochure that outlines the digital event landscape, addresses common questions about CareerSpark, and explains different investment opportunities for your company.
