YPI is an active citizenship programme which has seen £4.5m granted to grassroots social services charities championed by young people.
More than 250 secondary schools have committed to delivering YPI in the 2020/21 academic year.
YPI is a skills-based education programme that raises awareness of philanthropy, social issues and the needs of communities to young people. It is delivered within the curriculum as core activity, over an eight to 12-week period, across a full year group of students. Each secondary school is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI grant to a local charity through a unique programme of teamwork, research, and competition.
