More than a curriculum, Ignite is a partnership that helps students draw closer to the heart of Christ through experiential learning that equips them to make a difference.
As students build connections with sponsored children in a developing country, they’re introduced to a different way of relating to the world. By cultivating cross-cultural friendships, they learn to care about the needs of others in a new, deeper way.
The gospel is, at its core, relational. Jesus became flesh, lived a life of healing and justice among us, and ultimately died—all so that He could save us. He calls us to love our neighbors. But to love our neighbors, we must know our neighbors. That takes being in a relationship with them—sharing life with them.
Ignite’s rigorous curriculum equips educators with the resources and support they need to encourage students to be curious and think critically. The K–12 suite includes targeted, grade-specific lessons that illustrate biblical themes of justice and Jesus’ call to care for our neighbors, particularly the most vulnerable.
Using the "Understanding by Design" framework, teachers become coaches of understanding.
Lessons built around real-world issues challenge students to explore effective solutions using a biblical approach.
Multi-media resources from World Vision experts engage students and provide meaningful context for learning.
Ignite is adaptable, making it easy for schools to implement and integrate into their current curriculum wherever it works best.
Bring human transformation to life through grade-specific curriculum.
“Experience in and of itself is not enough. Experiences have to take place in the context of relationships. Human beings are relational - we learn in the context of relationships.”
"What this whole entire thing is doing is empowering students… The idea here is that if we pour our gifts into people that are in need, that we can do good. But it’s not as an adult—high school kids can do it.”
“As a parent, to see your daughter become an advocate for someone thousands of miles away who she may never meet, or even experience their culture, to have her have that kind of compassion, that kind of foresight that she needs to make a difference…she taught me to look beyond [my] bubble because of her partnership with World Vision.”
“There’s a misconception that poverty is a result of laziness, when that isn’t it at all. These people are working endlessly, day and night, just to survive [...] They’re just the same as we are, except for they were put in that circumstance.”
Throughout the year, Ignite offers students meaningful opportunities to follow Christ’s call to love others and make a lasting impact now, both locally and globally.
The experiences your students have and the relationships they engage in will have a lasting impact, helping them understand that positive change is brought about through physical, social, and spiritual transformation.
The next generation has the potential to live their faith out loud and create positive, lasting change in the world. Ignite gives them the opportunity to see what’s possible when they fix their eyes on Jesus and allow Him to work in them and through them.
Your specific experience will look unique to your school—tailored to your student body and their passions—creating a powerful vision for students of what it looks like to fully live out their faith in Christ.
