With the advent of the new school year, community-minded young people at the Regional Secondary School are getting involved in Youth in Philanthropy or YIP, a philanthropic program for high school students which is an international movement affiliated with community foundations.

With supervision from teachers Byron Ross and Jennifer Simpson, their Youth Advisory Committee solicits applications, determines eligibility and recommends funding to community charities.
