1. WHY THE FIRE METAPHOR? Fire is powerful and universally understood. It also has three component parts necessary for it to exist—Fuel, Oxygen and Heat.
Like fire, young people are also powerful. There’s power locked up inside each young person. The key to unlocking that power has 3 component parts—Community, Formation and Action.
We want to help unlock that power for them to heat up their world.
