Brae Pupils Win £3000 for The Compass Centre!
A group of young people from Brae High School took part in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) and won £3000 for the Compass Centre. This project is run through YPI Scotland with the aim to empower young people to create change within their local communities.
To compete, the young people compiled a PowerPoint on their chosen charity to present in front of external and local judges, as well as their peers, with the winner getting £3000 for their charity. The group visited The Compass Centre to carry out research and ask staff first-hand how money could benefit the service if they were to win. The young people then presented an amazing PowerPoint and won the £3000 for the Compass Centre.
The money will be used to turn the existing outbuilding into a new support space for service users. We are very grateful that the young people chose the Compass Centre as their charity and their hard work means that a new space will soon be available for services users.
We want to say a massive thank you to Caelan, Hansen, Hannah and Clair for their excellent work and contribution to the Compass Centre!
