The B!G Idea Dashboard > Team > Team Grace and Orlaith – St Mogues College

Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We thought it was an important to bring young people together and socialise for their own mental health and well-being. It’s also somewhere to go in the village if you are not interested in sport.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We didn’t realise there was such a lack of facilities in Bawnboy for young people to talk and socialise

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is the young people tend to suffer in silence from the lack of socialising

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

To have a safe place for them to socialise and make friends

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

One solution is to ask for a grant to reopen the Garda station (which is beside the school) to be turned into a youth cafe/ library, that is accessible to students

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

How would we improve the Garda station
