EPIC Youth founder, Justin Anthony, has a strong belief in the potential of the Fox Valley youth. Unfortunately, this potential has been, in large part, unrealized and untapped. Working with the youth in school and athletics, the EPIC staff observed that the expectations given to the students and players were regularly met and often exceeded. Thus, the issue preventing the unveiled greatness is diminished standards. At the core, EPIC Youth is an organization to raise the bar for the youth. EPIC raises the standard through empowering our students: to learn their identity in Christ, attain higher education and excel in athletics.
