YPI has positively engaged secondary school students across Scotland and awarded thousands of pounds to small, local, social service charities. In January 2010 the programme was described in The Times as “something everyteacher should eagerly find out about and think of introducing to their school.” Since then YPI has continued to develop and gain momentum across Scotland, and has been referenced positively in a number of HMIE School Reports.
At Crieff High School on 10th February 2016 The team representing Anchor House the ‘ Elephants’ delivered their presentation in front of a large audience and a panel of high-profile judges. The presentation was so wonderfully delivered and very moving I was near to tears watching it!
After a tense time for the Judges, students and the charities being represented the decision was in………team elephants won and we were presented with a cheque for £3000.
