At YPI Scotland we believe that the opportunity to celebrate success and share learning is central to the growth, development and embedding of YPI nationally. As such, we host an annual series of events targeted at all key stakeholders: Students, Teachers, Local Authorities, and Charities.

The YPI Scotland National Event takes place in June each year, and represents an opportunity to celebrate all that has been achieved through YPI that year, whilst showcasing best practice from across Scotland. The event recognises the philanthropic success and engagement of tens of thousands of secondary students who have been responsible for directing hundreds of thousands of pounds to local grassroots charities. Each year we also invite one or two headline contributors. In the past we have had the likes of Ed Sheeran, Nina Nesbitt, and Katherine Grainger in attendance. To find out more please contact us.
Throughout each academic year YPI Scotland hosts a series of regional teacher shared learning events in partnership with each of the local authority education teams through which we deliver YPI. These sessions are solely focused on professional update, shared learning, and peer networking. These sessions are increasingly being recognised as a valuable addition to teacher Continuing Professional Development (CPD). To find out more please contact us.
Each year YPI undertakes a variety of focus groups with stakeholders, charities, schools, participants and mentors. This provides YPI with 360 degree feedback providing a deeper understanding of experiences, perceptions, impact and learning from the YPI programme. This informs the continuous improvement and development of the programme to ensure that it remains relevant in the current environment. For more information or if you are interested in participating in a focus group please get in touch.

“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.”
