What to expect

Conference Day

Join us on the campus of the University of Arizona, at the incredible ENR2 building for an inspiring day of connection, learning and growth. 

Start the day with breakfast and curated networking. A special Keynote will kick off the day.

Morning and Afternoon sessions will cover a diverse array of topics, from a diversity of speakers, across two tracks: Personal and Professional Growth, and Community and Service. Attendees will have selected their track at registration, and will experience in-depth and tactical content in a cohort of intentional TYP members.

Lunch will be provided, along with more networking opportunities. In between sessions, new Rest and Rejuvenation breaks have been curated for extended moments of inspiration and rest. 


Take a look at what to expect at ignite520 2023. This year’s theme is Foundations: Building for Career Success and Community Impact.  Whether you are starting out in your career, are looking to build your professional skills, or are feeling established and ready to get involved in community impact, ignite520 will be an immersive leadership experience to fast-track laying the foundation for career success and community impact! 


Saturday is the Leadership Experience, where we start the day with a pre-conference networking event followed by a keynote, exciting sessions from emerging and established Tucson voices, and curated experiences in the heart of Tucson.
