If you are new to the profession, like to have fun, and want to learn more about the Virginia Education Association (VEA), Sparks is for you!

Sparks is a free, fun and rewarding event for any VEA member new to Virginia's public schools and who has little or no experience with the VEA.  The purpose of Sparks is to make a positive connection with newer members.  Through Sparks, participants learn skills and make connections with other members that help them in their profession, while gaining a better understanding of their Association.
