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.

The curriculum is licensed on an annual basis and can be renewed after 12 months of subscription.
IGNITE Online is our digital learning component powered by Canvas and designed to help girls and young women build their political power virtually. The interactive module will focus on how government works, the branches of government, political parties, and systems of power. Participants will be able to interact with other politically ambitious young women across America and declare their ambition to run for office. Anyone in any city can participate in our online learning community.
