Welcome to the SPARK (Senior Peers Actively Renewing Knowledge) Website!

The SPARK Philosophy

SPARK’s philosophy is to provide, at modest cost, learning and fun social experiences for participants.  There are no prerequisites, tests or grades for classes.  Instructors are members or volunteers who have a strong interest in a particular topic.

SPARK is an Elderhostel Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) and a member of the Elderhostel Institute Network (EIN.)

SPARK partners with the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC.)  This allows SPARK to have an LLI in a collegiate environment supported by the intellectual and cultural resources of the university. 

The SPARK office is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Contact Information:  816-235-2870 or e-mail:  umkcspark@umkc.edu
