Follow these simple steps to start your own IGNITE chapter.

1. Purchase the IGNITE Toolkit with Resource DVD:

We have created the IGNITE Toolkit, a comprehensive guide, full of step by step information on how to start and maintain a successful IGNITE chapter. It also includes all the forms, letters, flyers and handouts you will ever need to run a program. You don’t need to do a thing but put in a CD and go to the form that you need and fill in your local information and print it out!

2. Register your Chapter and member schools - download the chapter registration form, complete the form and email it as an attachment to info@ignite-us.org. You have 60 days to register your chapter once you pay your first member school registration fee.

Now you are ready to go. After you read the Toolkit, contact your trainer to schedule a session and get a personalized plan designed to meet the specific needs of your member school.
