We have been working closely with Scottish secondary school’s YPI Projects and have been the chosen charity twice. The YPI project is brilliant for young people to become more aware of social issues and local charities.
A little information from YPI…
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each participating school, each year is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI grant to a local charity through a unique programme of teamwork, research and competition. YPI is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues young people care most about.
