  • Mission statement

    Ignite Vision: A Society where young people are positively engaged in their communities

    Ignite Mission: To engage, empower and transform young people by creating positive communities of change*, based around their interests and needs.

    We do this through:
     Offering activity and education based programmes which engage young people
     Building positive relationships and mutual support to empower individuals
     Raising expectations for the future to transform lives for the long term

    * Communities of change occur when people are committed to respecting, supporting and encouraging each other, irrespective of background, culture or belief. These positive relationships [communities] form the foundation of a healthy society. They change individuals and they encourage change in their linked communities of family, friends, school and neighbourhood.

    Engage: Making meaningful contact

    Empower: Equipping a young person with the tools, resources and opportunities to make positive choices in their current situations.

    Transform: Challenging values and behaviour, and modelling alternatives, so that young people can change the direction of their lives.
