Youth in Philanthropy

Boissevain School’s Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) program was established in 2006 by then Vice Principal, Colleen Sambrook-Adams. The group was started with the support of the Thomas Sill grant. The group consists of grade 10 to 12 students, who first agree on a list of values that are important to them, then choose and interview groups meeting their criteria and finally come to a consensus on where the money should go. YIP has remained strong throughout the pandemic and looks forward to making more personal connections with community groups.
