2019 IGNITE Worldwide Spring Gala
Our annual Gala was a huge success- thanks to you! Your devotion and commitment to IGNITE Worldwide's mission has touched the lives of many young women and non-binary students. We are so excited to grow and reach more regions, schools and girls in the years to come. Total funds raised will be announced soon. Read more about the Gala on our website.
IGNITE is growing!
IGNITE is reaching more girls than ever! Come Fall, there will be many Panel speaking opportunities, and we want to invite new volunteers to join.

Please spread the word with your colleagues and friends, and encourage them to volunteer on a Panel. They can sign up to receive volunteer opportunities and learn how to get started by visiting our website: https://www.igniteworldwide.org/volunteer
We are always looking to partner with new companies & organizations for field trips. These events make a huge impact on girls' perceptions of STEM fields, and are also so rewarding for volunteers.

Know of a company that wants to host a field trip? Please have them contact our Program Manager, Becky Fuller at
