Build your plan, connect with resources, + take action.

Ignite strategic development workshops help emerging business and community project leaders get hands-on, real time mentorship to shape their concept and community. The goal of Ignite is to help you rapidly move from idea to impact by skill sharing and solution mapping with experts in fields that span entrepreneurship and nonprofit projects. Over 140 people have benefitted from the support of 70 mentors through Ignite workshops in their neighborhood. Ignite participants get organized, connected, and inspired.
