IGNITE K-12 Programming

IGNITE’s curriculum trains girls and young women to understand how government works, why it matters, and how to analyze the policy issues that impact their lives. Girls meet with elected women and candidates from their communities, who become role models for success. Throughout this program of rigorous self and community exploration, young women ultimately define their call to service and learn how to become the next generation of civic and political leaders.

We have three unique curriculum packages:

  • K-5 Curriculum
  • Middle School Curriculum
  • High School Curriculum

 

In California and Texas, IGNITE partners with school sites to deliver our programming during and after the school day. Our state incubators are where we pilot and test new programming for our national audience. Find a high school program.
