IGNITE Youth Organisation is a non-profit organisation and thus we depend upon the generous gifts and donations from organisations, companies, churches and individuals to continue the work we are doing with young people. We accept both monetary and in-kind gifts and donations. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your gift and donation, and the Program you want to support.
For cash donations, once you send us an email with the details of the amount you would like to donate, we will send you our bank details. We are currently still working on our online payment system for donations.
For in-kind gifts, we can always use:
- good quality used clothes for babies/children/teenagers/young adults (male and female)
- items of sports equipment (deflated footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats, football shirts)
- toiletries for young women (soap, deodorant, body lotion, sanitary towels, toothbrushes)
- items of office stationary (paper, pens, exercise books/notebooks, staplers, computers, chairs, desks)
- items of band equipment (mics, cables, speakers, music instruments)
Thank you very much! We look forward to receiving your email! Your gift and donation will go a long way in helping us reach more youth, and impact more communities and societies.
In the IGNITE Mentorship Program, we have awesome speakers that give messages geared specifically for the lives of a young person, to inspire, motivate them and give them hope and a feeling of purpose. We focus on topics youth love to talk about—sex, friendships, parents, peer pressure—and tackle the tough topics that people often avoid such as depression and suicide. We want each young person that walks through our doors to feel known and valued. We want them to know that they have people that care about them. Before, after and even during our membership meetings, there are opportunities to meet new people and help them know that they belong. So while we work hard to make our Programs fun and entertaining, we make sure to provide a loving and accepting community.
To achieve this, we use adult volunteers, counsellors, motivational speakers and youth leaders. If you come to one of our meetings, you’ll see a vibrant and passionate community of young people who all feel accepted and appreciated. We provide unconditional positive acceptance while encouraging an accurate appreciation of their special abilities and worth.
By developing genuine personal relationships and through the help of trained counsellors, leaders and volunteers we meet young people where they are at with understanding, love and acceptance. Our activities such as monthly meet-ups and camps have impacted and inspired young people to overcome drug and alcohol addictions, suicidal thoughts, child and sexual abuse, self-destructive behavior and depression. Give towards our Mentorship Program to help us continue to positively impact young people.
