IGNITE launched our Colorado programming in 2014, leading with an inaugural conference. Today we administer our high school programming, work with students to organize college chapters in Denver and Fort Collins, host conferences, and connect young women with our elected network.
In 2016 IGNITE launched College Councils in the Denver and Fort Collins regions. Each Council meets regularly to discuss relevant policy issues, learn from dynamic elected officials, develop political leadership skills, and build a network to support their ambitions for civic and political leadership.
