REALTORS® Light the Way: Teach Students Financial Literacy

Ignite Others Update

The NAR Leadership Team has voted unanimously to wind down the Ignite Others initiative. Ignite Others – in line with the core values for the real estate profession – was launched to inspire action and help REALTORS® make a positive impact in their communities. The spirit of the initiative and many of the resources it housed will continue on in other NAR programs. Resources that are part of Ignite Others, including member financial wellness and sustainability, have and will continue to be core elements of NAR’s business.
