In S5 pupils take part in the youth and Philanthropy (YPI) to raise awareness of local charities and issues facing people in our community. Each year we are responsible for directing a £3000 grant to a local charity through a unique programme of team work, research and competition. Our young people compete on behalf of their chosen charity to try and secure the grant.

To date Kirkintilloch High School pupils are responsible for securing 15,000 to grass root , small charities that have a huge impact to people to our area.
