Happy #iwillWeek2018 everyone.

It’s that time of year when all the kindest people in the world get together, bask in their kindness glow and celebrate positive changes in their communities.

The term Social Action isn’t something we hear a lot but it is a phenomenon we see on a daily basis. Some people call it volunteering, others say it’s youth work. But Social Action can actually take many forms; campaigning, fundraising, mentoring, to name a few.

Here’s what Social Action means to our project leaders:

If there was one way to sum up all the goodness of social action in one tiny soundbite, we’d say it’s: the grassroots activity of standing up and doing something good in your community, and putting some kind of longevity behind the changes you make.

It’s basically any action you take to make a positive difference; to change something for the better.

According to iWill, 4 in 10 young people between the age of 10 and 20 get involved in activities that make a positive difference.

Social Action can be anything from giving up an evening a week to be a mentor, to starting up your own project based on your community’s needs.

We’re pretty blessed at Go Think Big to know some genuinely good peeps – our project leaders who put social action at the heart of everything they do.
