The celebration took place at the Perth Concert Hall and guests were treated to an acoustic set from the multi-Brit Award winning artist, as well as her thoughts on the importance of philanthropy and her own charitable work.
There were also performances from singer Callum Beattie and comedian Anna Devitt, as well as presentations from a number of schools.
Aberdeenshire-raised Emeli Sandé said:
“It was an honour to be invited to attend and perform at the YPI 10th anniversary event and to share the room with so many inspiring young people making a difference in their communities.
“YPI is a great platform to empower young people and equip them with the skills, attitude and outlook needed to thrive and contribute in the 21st century.”
YPI is the flagship initiative of The Wood Foundation. The event celebrated its 10th anniversary. In that time it has engaged 140,000 young people, channelling grants of £3.2m to hundreds of local charities.
Sir Ian Wood, Chairman of The Wood Foundation, said:
“It is wonderful to recognise the successes of young people over this past year, and across the full decade YPI has been active here in Scotland.
