For Making Genuine Friendships in Your 20s

Finally a way to meet new people in your 20s

It can be hard to meet people as a recent grad or young professional—especially if you value in-person friendships like we do. That's why we've created this community, with all sorts of socials to give you unique experiences to meet your new crew.

  • Skip the Swiping

    This isn't about meeting people online, swiping, and texting. We're taking social networking back to what it should be: meeting people in-person.

  • Build Your Community

    Get to know new friends in your area, and explore local hotspots in your city. You'll get the chance to connect personally with lots of people, to find the people you want to invest in.

  • Fun Weekend Experiences

    Our events are full of activities selected by recent grads, for recent grads. With each social you'll get to have new conversations and new experiences.

Join the Spark with the New Spark Membership

Sign ups for the Social Spark membership are open now. This is our newest way for you to meet people personally, casually, and frequently in the Bay Area, and you're invited to be a part of it.

Who is this open to?

Our events are open to people ages 21-29 right now in the Bay Area (CA). Many of these people are "recent grads" or young professionals who are looking for new social circles after moving away from their college towns. However, you do not have to specifically be a recent grad to attend.

How many people are in a group?

Socials have around 5 people in each one, so there are enough people to find someone you gel well with, while also keeping it more personal.

How does it work when I sign up?

Right after you sign up you'll be prompted to fill out a questionnaire about yourself, which we use as a starting point for finding groups for you. Then, at the beginning of each month, you'll get invites to different outings (coffee dates, drinks, lunches, etc) which you'll get to choose between. After each social you'll review your groups so we know who to better group you with in the future, and you can continuously meet new people to find the ones you want to keep around.
