Youth Peer & Outreach
The little program with a big heart
EPIC's longest running and primary program, Youth Peer is a free after-school program for kids 8-18 at four centres in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Kids are matched with an older university or high school volunteer who tutors and mentors them one afternoon a week throughout the school year. Art, music and wellness workshops and healthy snacks are are provided.
Awards for $500 are given yearly to a graduating post-secondary student who has distinguished themselves for outstanding volunteerism beyond course requirements
