Today is a big day for the Youth Advisory Panel at Headstrong . We have spent the last number of years encouraging young people to be a voice in their community, to stand up and ensure that young people who are most vulnerable are counted.
We’re excited today to witness the launch of Think Big a new programme run in partnership by Headstrong and Telefonica O2 Ireland to change the way Ireland thinks about young people's mental health.
Think Big is not only encouraging young people to be a voice in their community, but it will allow us to show everybody just what we can do. And we know just how creative and passionate young people can be!
But what does this all mean? Well, if you have an idea, Think Big will encourage you and give you the support you need to bring your idea to life. This support comes in the form of funding, training, mentoring by O2’s dedicated staff, and a whole range of other imaginative supports.
So what next? Just take your idea, log onto www.o2ThinkBig.ie and follow the simple instructions. Who knows, soon that idea could become a reality.
So go on, Think Big!
