Stop Talking and Do Something! describes how a small idea can have such a far-reaching impact. This book about Young Social Innovators addresses some of the big questions of today, including:
- How do young people get involved in their communities; what motivates, inspires and encourages them?
- How can we create and generate volunteerism, social capital, active citizenship in Ireland?
- How can we develop and actualise the potential of young people?
- How can we create the social entrepreneurs and innovators of the future?
This independent evaluation reflects on the early days of the Young Social Innovators. This programme makes a difference to the lives of thousands of young people each year and to the communities which are benefiting from their work. The power of Young Social Innovators is its potential to join together the actions of young people, educational bodies, teachers, youth leaders, parents, and public and private bodies in a concerted effort to fire young people's passion to change the world for good (the vision of Young Social Innovators).
