Think Big

O2 want to change the way young people think about themselves and their communities. And in doing so, change the way young people are perceived...

Think Big is a new campaign that brings together all their environmental ansd community activity to focus on supporting young people who want to make a positive difference in their communities. Young people are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. But they need the right support to turn their ideas into reality. That’s where Think Big comes in. The scheme is aimed at young people with great ideas and helps them get going by giving them the training and funding to make their ideas work. O2 is the driving force behind Think Big because they believe in the power of young people and their ideas. And as one of the biggest companies in the UK, O2 can back them, invest in them, campaign for them, give them a platform and a voice.

Think Big want to hear from young people with bright ideas for projects. Successful applicants will receive a grant of £300 and a day's training to get their project up and running. They can then apply for an additional grant of up to £2500 and four days leadership training. They plan to fund at least 400 projects this year. O2 have joined with the National Youth Agency, UK Youth and 35 youth charities to deliver this creative and interesting scheme.
