  • Who We Are

    The Ignite Fair mission: connecting young people with meaningful volunteer experiences in their communities.

    What is Ignite Fair?

    Ignite Fair s an annual volunteer fair hosted in Richmond Hill, connecting hundreds of young people with volunteer opportunities offered by several nonprofit organizations, charities, and community groups annually. We are on a mission to make volunteering more meaningful and accessible for all; we believe that youth have the potential to better our world by taking positive actions in their communities, both at home and abroad.

    Who organizes Ignite Fair?

    Ignite Fair is an initiative of Pledges for Change, a youth-led not-for-profit and global movement with a single mandate: to discover, design, and discuss new ways for young people to tackle the world’s greatest social challenges.. Since 2013, the organization has engaged over 5,000 young people with its programs, and supported the commitment of nearly 28,000 hours of community service by young people around the world.
