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 team work, research and competition.   YPI Scotland is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues’ young people care most about.
