Who we are
Ignite Youth works with vulnerable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Ignite's committed team of youth workers lead a range of positive activities such as sports sessions, employment workshops, and specialist activities for particular groups (young parents, young people in trouble with the police etc).
We encourage young people to make positive life choices by:
- offering programmes which engage young people
- building positive relationships in order to empower individuals
- building confidence in order to transform lives for the long term
At Ignite we believe in the power of young people and their potential to make a positive impact on the community. We work closely with individuals that others may have “written off”, such as those young people engaging in anti-social behaviour. We seek to provide fun and engaging projects and tailored 1:1 mentoring, in order to support young people through the issues they are facing and to encourage them to strive to transform their lives.
