Microsoft Announces New “YouthSpark Hub” on We Day Seattle!

By Karen Bergin, director, Citizenship and Public Affairs

As Human Resources Executive Vice President Lisa Brummel writes on the Official Microsoft Blog this morning: “There is nothing quite like seeing the brilliant spark of an idea in the eyes of young person – apart, perhaps, from seeing it in the eyes of 15,000 young people! I will have that privilege today at KeyArena at the second annual Seattle We Day event as part of Microsoft’s three-year commitment to sponsor Free The Children’s signature event and the We Act in-school program in Washington and California.”

As part of our YouthSpark initiative, on We Day Seattle we’re relaunching the YouthSpark Hub, a place where young people can go to get free resources and programs to help them imagine and create a better future.

Follow #youthspark and @MSFTCitizenship for live tweets and behind-the-scenes content from our YouthSpark Reporters who will be capturing the unforgettable moments and positive energy of We Day. You can also follow them through this Twitter list. To experience We Day Seattle, you can watch the livestream starting at 9:15 a.m. PDT.

Coming up next: please join us for We Day California on March 26!
