Nike_200
As a global youth and sport brand, Nike has spent 30 years building relationships based on the role sport plays in people’s lives. When we look at future global trends for both youth and sport, we see cause for concern. Youth unemployment and exclusion is a global trend that is set to increase at an alarming pace. Today’s young people live in a deeply complex world – on the one hand a world of great instability and fragmentation, on the other hand a world that is more connected and interdependent than ever before. Meanwhile, we see a decline in youth participation in traditional sport and fitness activities, frequently due to cuts in infrastructure, curriculum and coaches. At the same time, we see dramatic increases in youth obesity and diabetes – both linked to diet and inactivity – with potentially devastating consequences for future generations. These are depressing scenarios. As a company focused on young people, we considered how we could apply our core competencies to tackle some of the issues. We see clearly how sport brings health and fitness benefits. We also see further reaching benefits, including building teamwork, leadership, self-esteem, inclusion and confidence. A growing number of examples demonstrate how sport can be used to address the world’s most pressing challenges, as represented by the Millennium Development Goals that cover issues as diverse as gender equity and HIV/AIDS. Although we recognize that sport by itself will not solve the world’s challenges, we believe that sport and Nike’s role as a funder of innovation and advocacy can help spark real change on the ground. To do so, we focus on leveraging our core business competencies, including funding, research and development, innovation, marketing, employees, products and partners.

Virginmobile_200
Right now, there are over one million young people living on the streets of the US. Many have been abused or neglected and left with no choice but to beg, steal, or sell their bodies to survive. Virgin Mobile wants to change that. The RE*Generation is our effort to empower a generation to help its own. We’re bringing together organizations that care about homeless youth and connecting them with young people who want to help. And we’re making it easy for our customers to take an active role and get involved – through donating, volunteering, and even text messaging and downloading. Last spring, The RE*Generation Task Force hit Capitol Hill to convince Congress to make November “National Homeless Youth Awareness Month”.  This November will provide a great opportunity for government, organizations, and volunteers to intensify their efforts on behalf of the millions of homeless youth across the nation. With The RE*Generation, one person can make a difference. Check out The RE*Generation web site to learn more: www.virginmobileusa.com/regeneration.
