The Wood Foundation's Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) has gathered more than 1000 young students in Scotland at the Perth Concert Hall to celebrate their philanthropic achievements.
The event addresses health and social issues, including mental health, isolation, LGBTQ+ and period poverty.
More than 15 schools took to the stage to represent the issues they secured YPI grants for and share what they have achieved through the programme this academic year.
