Forest Hill School are looking for partners to help develop, deliver, resource and/or offer in-kind support for the Young Citizens Programme.
2008 Forest Hill Secondary School has been running the Youth & Philanthropy
Initiative (YPI), a programme that engages young people in social change
and empowers them to participate in the growth and development of their
communities. Through the YPI, students are provided with hands-on,
reality-based experiences which gives them the skills to assess the
