Futures Ignite envisions equitable preK–college and career opportunities that propel all youth to thrive in postsecondary life and strengthen our communities.
We amplify youth and community power by inspiring, guiding, and advocating for youth to determine their college, career, and leadership futures.
We work to change the educational inequities in the NYC public school system, which is rooted in systemic racial and socioeconomic segregation.
We aim to dismantle the structural racism that permeates every part of our society in order to build a just and equitable future in which all students can reach their full potential.
We encourage young people to step into their leadership potential and ensure their voices are included in the decisions that affect their communities.
We strive to combat the climate crisis through student-led initiatives to create greener neighborhoods, which directly impact community health and student outcomes.
We recognize the impact community health and wellness has on student outcomes, and we work to create and sustain mutually beneficial partnerships to ensure both communities and our students thrive.
