Epic Youth Services
Our mission is to provide youth with opportunities and activities that build positive personal and community relationships, strengthen and develop self-esteem and self-confidence, and promote personal skill development. Our goal is to ensure that our programs are affordable and barrier-free for all youth in Cardston and the surrounding area. We aim to provide programs and services that connect youth to their community while enhancing positive social interactions and skill development.
This leadership development training is designed to prepare youth to become mentors. Through training youth will gain certifications and build their skills as leaders. Courses include training on leadership styles, Racism, Goal setting, Community involvement, self-esteem, and Teamwork.
Epic connects after school tutors, mentors and technological resources to the kids who need it most. We also do leadership training, personal development instruction and career and post-secondary guidance. Epic offers barrier free options for youth who are limited in their access to these resources.
