Projects

Below you can find details of individual projects we have done as part of Ignite Yorkshire so far.

If you are a young person who has been involved in Ignite you can find your project here, and ways to share it with other people, including employers.

We know it can sometimes be hard to translate your experiences into words, especially for CVs and application forms. That is why each of our project pages has a breakdown of what you did, where you did it, and all of the skills you may have developed. You can use this information for your CV, cover letters, job or university applications. You could also include a link to these pages.
