These five tips will support charities’ engagement with YPI
All social service charities registered in Scotland through OSCR are eligible. There are no limits to how many teams you work with or how many YPI grants you receive.
That First Contact
YPI Scotland is a youth led programme, whereby student teams choose the charities they care most about. Through initial contact you may find that some groups are better prepared than others, your patience is vital.
Students can learn a great deal about charities online and through literature, however meaningful contact with your charity through meetings and visits will bring the programme to life.
Student teams will want to understand your organisation’s history, focus, and service provision. Central to their research is understanding the tangible impact the £3000 YPI grant would have upon your service.
Although tempting to equip students with materials, it is important student teams are original and package together their own presentations. Take a look at the Judging Pack to see what they will be judged on.
“It has been a very rewarding year for us in many ways. Many YPI groups supported us this year and while many may not have won the award, many more young people now know about Archway. As a small local charity it is vital for us to increase our profile and this is a great way to do it.”
