When working on the Youth Philanthropy Project, I improved my skills in public speaking and communicating with outside professionals and groups. Through the YPI project, I was able to learn much more about immigrant health issues and the barriers for immigrants in health care. This project showed me that this issue is relevant to my life and is happening all around me. In order to remain engaged with my organization (AMPHS, Academy of Medical and Public Services), I could volunteer when I am above 16 and could also donate or provide any services needed. I found that the most challenging part of the project was finding an organization that related to our social issue (medical health in immigrants) and reaching out to them.
