Educational Program Innovations Charity Society (EPIC)

is a national award-winning registered Canadian charity and Nova Scotian incorporated society in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada since 1996.

EPIC During COVID

EPIC lost no time going online with our programs in April 2020 to offer our kids and parents continuity and support in these unprecedented times.

In September 2020, EPIC began running fully in-person and online, instituting safety protocols in accordance with NS Health and Safety and the NS Department of Education.

January 2022: EPIC continues to respond to the needs of its clients by offering on-line tutor/mentoring for students while the public health and educational officials are sorting out protocols for students in response to the Omicron variant.

"The volunteers show them there is good in the world. They actually show them the good in themselves through positive reinforcement. They raise the bar for them, but not so far that they cannot reach it."
