IGNITE builds political ambition in young women.

We deliver programs in high schools and colleges that provide political and civic education, exposure to women in political leadership, hands on training opportunities and a peer network of women who support and nurture each other’s aspirations for civic and political leadership.

IGNITE inspires and unites young women to overcome the barriers that prevent them from seeking elected office. By belonging to IGNITE, young women learn and practice political leadership skills to make change for their communities.

IGNITE has a national vision: to build a movement of young women across the United States who are civically engaged, respond to issues, and who ultimately pursue elective office.

IGNITE started in the Bay Area in 2009. We now have a presence in CaliforniaColorado and Texas.
