Aberdeenshire Life Education Centres (ALEC) are eager to partner with secondary pupils who are involved in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI).  Pupils who identify the misuse of substances (i.e. alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs and so called “legal highs”) amongst young people as being their most prominent social issue, might consider supporting the work of ALEC.  ALEC fulfils the YPI criteria of being a local grassroots charity, the impact of which is significant since it benefits every young person in Aberdeenshire from nursery through to S2.  ALEC recognises the many benefits of having pupils in local secondary schools supporting ALEC, raising the charity’s profile with fellow pupils, teachers, parents, local businesses and other local charitable organisations.  More importantly however, we also recognise that through YPI, the range of health issues that ALEC address in the mobile classroom and in the S1/2 programmes are highlighted through the class presentation.  

Please download our most recent annual report.  This will provide you with current information and statistics that will inform the content of your presentation.

If you would like a branded PowerPoint template to help get you started with your presentation, this is also available for download.
