We were honoured to be awarded a $5,000 Youth In Philanthropy grant. The Langley DW Poppy Secondary School students were the winners of the presentation competition highlighting the programs of ACT 2.

History: In 2002, YPI was created by founder Julie Toskan and formally established by the Toskan Casale Foundation, the original Canadian creators of MAC Cosmetics. Our values are rooted in the experience of the MAC AIDS Fund, when values-driven decisions were made to engage and empower the public to stand up for some of the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Over the past sixteen years, YPI has grown into an international multi-award-winning social service program that has directed over $17 million in grants to charities across Canada, the United Kingdom and New York City, 100% through the choices of over 500,000 informed and empowered secondary students.
