“Because of YPI, I am now able to approach an overwhelming issue, break it down into accomplishable goals, implement an action plan, and enjoy a successful outcome.”

— YPI Graduate

“Graduating from three years of YPI is like getting a Ph.D. in succeeding in life. I have learned group dynamics, how to lead in different situations, how to function in a world of adults, personal strengths, philanthropy, and so much more.”

— YPI Graduate

“I often find myself taking what I learn in YPI and trying to set an example for other high school students who are not in the program. I feel that YPI has given me a huge advantage by teaching me life lessons and values that I would not have otherwise learned.”

— YPI Graduate

“For three years, I have learned about leadership, philanthropy, social entrepreneurship — factors of life I had not even considered before. These are now the very things I value when I encounter others and engage in different organizations. I want to be blessed enough to be a philanthropist in a grand way someday. YPI taught me all these different aspects of giving — fulfilling a true purpose in the world. For this I am forever grateful. “
