“This academic year, we have more than 250 schools committed to delivering the programme, with the majority of activity underway. We have been delighted to return to a number of in-person YPI Final Showcases. We’ve also continued to learn from the digital approach, with some events continuing online. We have grown our funding partner mentoring thanks to Teams, Zoom, Google Meets (and the myriad of other platforms we had barely considered two years ago).
“We also launched our Maximising Impact Sessions which are supporting our schools to consider the potential of YPI to address a range of community and curricular drivers.
“We have learned a lot together and have always remained ambitious. This is only thanks to our partners and, as we reflect on the year that has been and the year that is to come, it feels an opportune time to share our gratitude. Our gratitude for our teachers, SLT, for our likeminded, supportive funding partners, for the charities and third sector agencies, and of course our dedicated regional and national team. We thank them for their continued commitment to innovate, often in extremely challenging circumstances, so that #generationchange can be empowered during this generation-defining time.”
