Youth have bright ideas. BRIDGES helps launch them.

In January of 2016, the second annual Youth Ignite Memphis summit brought together hundreds of students, including eight presenters from diverse backgrounds with one thing in common: a desire to make Memphis a better place to live, work and play. Each presenter was granted exactly 5 minutes and 20 slides to present their idea. The top three ideas received funding to jump start their projects.

Mark your calendars now for the third annual Youth Ignite Memphis event, Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017.  

If you’d like to present an idea at Youth Ignite 2017, fill out our application now. We have extended the deadline to December 5!
