IGNITE Women Leaders


Ignite builds political ambition in young women.

Their Story?

Ignite was founded in 2009 to build young women’s political ambition and train them to run for office.

Women don’t run for office at the same rates as men.

Why? They aren’t asked or encouraged to, and because women under-value their qualifications, they don’t typically put themselves forward. While there are a number of organizations that recruit, train, and support adult women to run, no one is building political ambition among young women. We need an easy way to inspire young women to become civic and political leaders, then to connect them to opportunities where they can exercise these new skills.

Ignite does just that: we implement a political training program, specifically tailored to the needs of young women. Our model brings the program to any community that wants it, then within that community, builds a cadre of young women who first become civically engaged, then become civic leaders, and ultimately pursue elective office.
