Think: MTV

Who: Youth, MTV

This week’s post is on a site started in beta last month. MTV launched, a site devoted to bringing together youth who want to make a difference around the world. The site has amazing potential. Below is the about section on the site, check it out when you get a chance.

Think is your community where you, your friends, and your favorite celebrities can get informed, get heard and take action on the issues that matter to you most.

MTV has launched Think to give young people everywhere the opportunity to make your life, your community and your world better. The Think community provides the tools so you can do just that.

Think is for the sunny-day volunteer, the die-hard activist and literally everyone in between. To any and every young person who’s done with standing around when they see injustice, welcome home. This is your place – a connector and organizer of college students, high school dropouts and people on both sides of the political spectrum. So, whether you’re all worked up over the environment, global poverty or education rights, you can use Think’s one-of-a-kind tools and resources to get a crew together and change the world for the better. Your cause. Your effect.

So sign up, create a profile, and get busy making change. Here, we’ll get you started:
