Who we are

IGNITE Youth provides a purpose-centered approach to career guidance and coaching so as to help teenagers aged 13-19 years and young adults aged 20-29 years, to create meaningful careers for themselves. Through a holistic approach to youth development, we are unleashing young people's creative and innovative power, creating the next generation of African Leaders who are contributing positively to the communities they live in and rising above socio-economic challenges. We help them to think critically and innovatively about how they can contribute solutions to the problems their communities and country face.

We help youth to find and create purpose-driven careers for their lives that are personally fulfilling to them, and at the same time motivated by a desire to make a difference in their community, nation and world, beyond the self.

We do this through 8 holistic Programs that nurture their interests and areas of passion, and help them to gain self-esteem and self sustaining habits for life. We support young people from a variety of backgrounds, including young people from underserved communities, disadvantaged backgrounds and teen moms.

The 8 Programs we run are IGNITE Creativity, IGNITE Influencers, IGNITE Hope, IGNITE Girls, IGNITE Lifeline, IGNITE Sports, IGNITE Mentorship and IGNITE Tech Innovations.

IGNITE draws together a network of local and international organisations, youth leaders, religious organisations, schools, groups, professionals and individuals who share a common vision to empower young Africans.
