Youth Philanthropy Speed Dating

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Curriculum

It was a great pleasure to welcome some twenty different charities to our ‘ Charity Speed Dating’ event at Charleston yesterday.

All of our S3 pupils are currently involved in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI). Pupils are engaging with local charities, researching their aims, structure and importance in our community.

This event gives our pupils the chance to meet the real people who enable and support the most vulnerable members of our society. Our event also encourages our pupils to gather vital facts and information so they can produce well informed and interesting presentations in the hope of winning the £3,000 cash grant for their chosen charity.

We are all looking forward to our second final later in the year when one of the very deserving charities will win this vital grant to help boost their funds.

Thank you to everyone who supported the event.

Mrs Carol MacKenzie, RMPS Department
