About Us

IgniteMinds is a free, non-profit, community-based tutoring organization that connects kids who want some extra help with high school students who want to give back to their community. Based in Los Angeles, IgniteMinds has chapters nationwide and globally.

IgniteMinds also runs a blog and a podcast. These student-run opportunities enable high schoolers to share their perspectives on a variety of topics. The blog and podcast supplement our vision to educate without providing economic barriers and to give students a platform to help. 

Our Story

When the COVID-19 pandemic started to rupture education all across the world, Aksh Garg had an idea. After working for months, Aksh built IgniteMinds from the ground up, growing the organization into what it is today. Check out the other members of our Executive Board below!
