How we support you:

  • Expert training for staff and student mentors
  • Our Ignition app provides easy access to a library of video and written resources
  • Year-round email and phone support

What do I need to make this happen?

  • 2-4 staff members to serve as Ignition Advisors
  • A team of upperclassmen to serve as mentors (recommend a 1:10 ratio to your incoming class)
  • Many schools utilize grant funding from sources like GEAR UP, Title 1, SSS, and others.

How it works:

  1. We work with you to build a customized mentoring plan
  2. You recruit and select an amazing team of upperclassmen
  3. We send an expert trainer to your campus to prepare your mentor team for success. Mentors receive over 10 hours of training and coaching.
  4. Your Ignition mentors welcome new students into your school at the Ignite day (orientation).
  5. Your mentor team meets with their mentees on a regular basis throughout the school year. They utilize our proven curriculum of activities to engage and teach.
