Dare to Imagine Dinner


We are so grateful for all of the generous supporters of the 2022 Dare to Imagine Dinner. On June 1, nearly 200 guests joined us at the Palmer House Hilton for an evening filled with fun and inspiration. With the support of our volunteers, sponsors, attendees, and in-kind and monetary donors, we raised more than $110K. The investment means so much, and we can't wait to share how our students are impacted by the support. 

Check back for details for Dare to Imagine 2023! We can't wait to see you next June.

Career Intensives

Twice per year, we partner with local businesses for Career Intensives; our signature career exposure and exploration program.

Past Intensives courses have included workplace tours and discussions on workplace norms, classroom projects (developed with teachers) that simulate real work projects, visits to EPIC, virtual meetings, and having students shadow for a day.

Summer Internships

EPIC strives to bridge the gap between classrooms and careers. We support and train our student leaders with the skills and resources necessary to prepare them for their desired career fields, gain valuable work experiences, and develop vital life skills to reach their full potential.
