Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Stanstead

Stanstead Col­lege Grade 9 Mon­day pre­sented a cheque for $5,000 to Mou­vance, a teen sui­cide pre­vent or­ga­ni­za­tion. The pre­sen­ta­tion was part of a larger class pro­ject with the Youth and Phi­lan­thropy Ini­tia­tive (www.goypi. org), a Toronto-based or­ga­ni­za­tion that pro­vides stu­dents with real-world ex­pe­ri­ence with com­muni- ty-based phi­lan­thropy. The stu­dents re­searched var­i­ous char­i­ties that worked to bring aware­ness and so­lu­tions re­gard­ing var­i­ous so­cial and then, in a class vote, chose to sup­port Mou­vance. In ad­di­tion to win­ning a $5,000 grant for Mou­vance through YPI, the stu­dents shot a video about teen sui­cide, or­ga­nized a morn­ing assem­bly and held a Free Dress Day to raise more money for the or­ga­ni­za­tion.
