What is BIG?

BIG is a working group of community members, teachers, and businesspeople. The work of the BIG Committee is facilitated by Burnie Works

BIG aims to support our young people to:

  • Begin the dream. Imagine the possibilities. Go for it!
  • To sow the seeds of aspiration with young people early in their education journey.
  • To build strong and active connections that create pathways for young people.
  • To cultivate innovation and resilience in young people.
