2017 Ignition Participants

The Learning Club - “Unlocking the abundance of life for tomorrow’s leaders.” The Learning Club provides positive and pivotal learning experiences for the most marginalized kids in Kansas City through after school tutoring and enrichment programs.

The Grooming Project - The Grooming Project is the pilot program of Empowering the Parents to Empower the Child (EPEC). EPEC is a 501c3 nonprofit devoted to empowering families to become self-reliant through job training, life skills and practical solutions to end their cycles of poverty. EPEC trains parents in a trade high in market demand that pays a livable wage.

Connecting for Good -  The mission of Connecting For Good is to provide computer skills training, low cost computers, and internet access to low income communities. We believe in a connected future for all—and that through digital literacy training and internet access, vulnerable populations in Kansas City will gain measurable improvements in Education, Employment, Economic Impact, and the Environment.
