Young people are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm. As one of the UK’s leading digital businesses, we believe that we can, and should, play a part in inspiring a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial young people. We want to back them. Invest in them. Campaign for them. Give them a platform and a voice. That’s why O2 is the driving force behind Think Big — a series of programmes to help 1 million young people gain skills for life by 2015.
We're funding and supporting young people aged 13-25 to lead positive change in their communities. With money, training and support, our social action programme can help turn their ideas into inspiring projects that benefit communities and give young people real purpose.
We know that the job market is tough for young people, so we’ve joined forces with Bauer Media, to create GoThinkBig.co.uk, an innovative digital platform which offers careers advice, tools and thousands of high quality work experience and skills opportunities to help young people get a foot on the career ladder. We’re working in partnership with UK businesses including Channel 4, Reed Smith, Capgemini, Spotify and many others to offer 30,000 work opportunities to young people through GoThinkBig in the first 3 years.
