Empowering Proactive Youth and Communities, or EPYC, aims to teach and empower youth in the Waterloo Region to be proactive about their thinking, actions, and ultimately, about their own lives. We encourage, motivate, and challenge youth to create projects that enrich their lives and the lives of their fellow community members. As an organization we seek to address the following needs in our community:
• To unify youth to develop and complete socially-conscious and community-based projects
• To supplement the theory and curriculum youth learn in school with transferable skills
needed to lead successful post-secondary lives
• Personal development through experiential learning, with a focus on social initiatives and civic responsibility
