Spring Term 2018

Youth and Philanthropy Initiative

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.

Five teams of Year 12 students have been working with their chosen charities to build up their case for support since the start of the term when charity representatives from Elgin and Moray attended Gordonstoun for the first stage of the Scottish Youth and Philanthropy Initiative. This culminated in the winner being announced in Chapel at the end of term with the £3000 being awarded to the team representing Anderson's Care Home in Elgin. The staff at the Home were delighted with the result and have plans to use the money to buy a specilised bicycle to allow their elderly residents crucial access to - and experience of - the outdoors.

And the winners are... Anderson's Care Home Elgin

Well done to everyone who took part in this fantastic scheme.
