YPI Experience

On Service Day, the ninth grade YPI finalists presented their non-profits to a panel of judges comprised of both our peers and judges from the YPI project. I was lucky enough to be one of the finalists who presented that day. This initiative has made me realize that education inequality is a much more pressing issue than I had thought and it has impacted a large number of a diverse amount of peoples, not necessarily a specific demographic. I learned how to work together with my team and how to reach out to big organizations because originally I was scared to email our organization. I asked about internships offered at our organization because I was really considering working with them in the future. I thought that this project deviated a bit from the curriculum but it was a nice break and it did fit well with how we were learning about social issues that rose up in ancient civilizations.
