  • EPIC program

    empowerment for Peace through Information & Communication. EPIC empowers some of society’s most vulnerable youth. They may be out-of-school youth living in the poorest of communities. They can be victims of armed conflict, former child soldiers, or members of extremist groups. Or, they may be vulnerable to joining such groups. What most share in common is a sense of exclusion and frustration. EPIC gives these young adults a sense of inclusion. It helps them become peace actors by developing peace-building skills. We start with 5-day live-in workshops close to where they live. The workshops build awareness about forms of violence, nonviolent communication, conflict management strategies, leadership, digital citizenship and social media campaigning skills
