Do Something Different

Ignite is all about us young people working together – and supporting each other – to do something different.

What do we mean by “do something different”? We mean putting the power in your hands – truly – by making sure you have the opportunities and resources you need to lead change. We’re committed to investing our resources, energy, and funds into youth-led projects across Chatham-Kent. Ignite is designed to be your place to make things happen, with access to mentorship, partnerships, funding, supports, workshops, training, and of course celebrations of success!
