EPIC works to build leadership skills and experience for young people with disabilities by engaging in community service projects and leadership development workshops through our signature program, EPIC Service Warriors. Service Warriors are youth ages 16-23 with disabilities who make a one year commitment to monthly community service projects and regular leadership development workshops. Through these commitments, Service Warriors gain self-advocacy, independency skills, as well as technical experience and knowledge to help achieve their personal goals. We believe that every young person has a Warrior within!
The EPIC Service Warrior Program runs from April to April of the following year. During these 12 months, Service Warriors will participate in an Orientation, Opening Cermony, a minimum of 12 community service projects, and 10 leadership development workshops in the Greater Boston Area, culminating in a graduation celebration.
EPIC Service Warriors costs $200 for the program year. This one time fee will provide each Service Warrior with uniforms, meals at each service day, the EPIC Service Warriors Handbook and transportation to service projects that are not accessible by the MBTA. A limited amount of scholarships are available for those who qualify.
“People think that because I have a disability I can’t do things. I like being an EPIC Service Warrior because it shows others that I am a leader and I can create change!”
“The most important thing I learned as an EPIC Service Warrior is that I don’t need to be afraid to speak up. I have found my voice.”
