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.
With the YPIS, students have an opportunity to research the needs of their local community and find an issue which they passionately believe in. Identify your individual strengths, skills and weakness and support one another to be a rounded and collective team.
