The Magic

The Youth Peer Program—supervised and managed by EPIC since 1998—matches young volunteers with even younger students. They come to Youth Peer one afternoon a week (the program runs daily, Monday through Friday) for an hour of one-on-one tutoring and an hour of socializing, creative activities, food and games. See our Youth Peer page for all the information on this program.

The relationship between student and mentor can work magic.
