IGNITE’s Mission

IGNITE’s mission is to create opportunities to spark girls’ excitement about technology careers and inspire them to new possibilities. IGNITE lights them up. Girls and non-binary students in grades K-12, and college from all backgrounds interact with professional women in technology careers during the school day. Self-identifying young women and non-binary students glimpse themselves as innovators and entrepreneurs through stories of successful women who work and live in their communities. Working with teachers, IGNITE increases interest and participation in computer science and engineering classes.

With the growth and positive outcomes IGNITE has created, a demand for the program in elementary schools and colleges has arisen. IGNITE’s mission now encompasses girls, young women, and non-binary students at every level of their education.

 

IGNITE is a unique program because

We train companies how to plan activities that have been shown to increase STEM engagement. In this way, employees get to interact directly with the girls and know that they are making a difference in their lives

The number of girls we impact is unparalleled by any other program. We work toward equity for girls by running STEM programs in public schools during the school day

When IGNITE is at a school, the girl enrollment in technology classes goes from under 10% to 30-80%*

We train teachers how to use the IGNITE model to produce the highest program quality possible

We train volunteers (employees) to be the best possible speaker and role model in the limited time they have for girls

We take girls to field trips to create awareness of STEM opportunities in the corporate world

We meticulously prepare every detail to ensure time spent with girls creates the positive outcome of girls in STEM classes and careers

We use education research-based best practices
