Across Canada, students are returning to school amid a pandemic and the real possibility of a second wave that could further disrupt the school year. Back-to-school is usually about getting back to normal but there will be little normal for students, parents, educators, and their support networks this year.
2013! It’s been a year to remember. Here are some of the highlights from this year:
1. Our launch of YPI Northern Ireland
2012-2013 was the first year that we ran the YPI program in Northern Ireland. We opened the program in 5 schools, and we’re on track to grant 10 grants in 2013-2014!
We had an amazing story submitted to us by a YPI team member. One YPI judge was absolutely blown away by the experience of a YPI Final Presentation:
“In my work I suffer Death by PowerPoint too often to be able to suffer bad presentations even for the best of causes. But today’s presentations were up there with the best I’ve seen.”
