Pupils ready to make a difference @ypi_scotland

S3 pupils were inspired to #makeadifference to the local community this morning (Wednesday 12 September) at the launch of the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative.  Thanks to George Smuga from YPI Scotland for a thought provoking presentation.   After choosing a local charity to champion, they will engage with the charity and prepare to explain to their peers why their charity should be chosen.  With a £3000 grant awarded to the winning charity from the Wood Foundation and £250 from our non-uniform day money to finalists, it is an opportunity to make a difference in real terms while developing essential skills.  Part 2 of the launch takes place next week when groups will 'speed date' with local charities before choosing who to support.
