The IGNITE Mission

Our mission is to inspire girls to become the future technology leaders and innovators of our world.

IGNITE provides equal access to career and technical education for underrepresented populations. We discovered that inviting girls to informational programs where they met women working in STEM careers immediately increased girls interest up to 50% in technology programs offered by the school district. IGNITE introduces school girls from grades 6-12 to technology careers via panel discussions, job shadowing, technology workshops, mentoring, and field trips throughout the school year to visit the work places of professional women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.

IGNITE has educated and empowered over 30,000 young women in middle school and high school grades to pursue education and careers in STEM.
