Our Plan for Expansion
Over the next five years,we are turning the right
thing to do for women into the best thing to do for America.
Through IGNITE ACROSS AMERICA, we will:
Train and mobilize 50,000 young
women a year. Deploy IGNITE Fellows in
all 50 states to organize local women.
Launch 1,000 IGNITE College Chapters.
License our K–12 curricula to 1,000
schools. Host 15 ‘Young Women Run’
Political Leadership Conferences each year.
Nurture the civic and political careers
of thousands of IGNITE alumni.
IGNITE ACROSS AMERICA will bring IGNITE
programming to every state and dramatically
increase our impact; creating an entirely new
generation of young women who are ready to
own their political power.
Fellows are college women and recent graduates
who want to jump-start their public service careers.
IGNITE trains these stellar community leaders to
organize College Chapters on the ground and host
training events. Each Fellow trains 200 to 500
young women on campuses in their respective
region each year.
These student-led campus organizations build
political engagement and ambition among college
women who organize activities like voter registration
drives, candidate forums, and policy discussions.
IGNITE provides trainings, toolkits, webinars and
access to our robust network of elected officials to
support College Chapter members.
Our interactive curricula focuses on how
government works, why gender parity matters,
and how to analyze personally pressing policy
issues. Students build transferable leadership skills
and define their call to service. The curriculum is
available to license on a sliding scale and includes
training and technical assistance from IGNITE staff.
These regional convenings bring together 200 to
400 young women to network with elected women
and receive political leadership and policy training.
Our robust IGNITE Alumni Network provides
ongoing training and connects politically ambitious
young women to each other and to our network of
