• SPARC is a group of young professionals in the capital city suburbs interested in personal growth, enhancing peer relations, giving back & defying the notion that there is nothing to do in CT.

    SPARC (Suburban Professionals Achieving Real Change) was founded in August 2017. The CT River Valley Chamber recognized a need for young professionals in the suburbs of Hartford to establish a hub for coming together. Our leadership team from throughout the region have agreed that SPARC will focus on altruism, education and social activities to promote personal growth, family enrichment and peer relations.
