Students engage in Youth Philanthropy Initiative

Bedales Block 4 students (Year 10) spent this half term working on the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI). Split into teams, the students have been researching social problems in the local area and creating engaging and persuasive presentations on a local charity they believe is best placed to tackle the issues they care about. At the YPI School Final, the winning teams from each class will deliver their presentation in front of a large audience and a panel of judges, in a bid to win £3000 for their charity. We would like to invite parents to attend the final in the Quad on Thursday 31 October at 7.30pm. YPI has positively engaged thousands of secondary school students across England and Northern Ireland who have, since the project’s inception in 2006, awarded over £1 million to small, local, social service charities.
