EPIC Ambassador Program
EPIC Ambassadors are kids, teens and adults with special needs who live in our community, and volunteer their time to be our advocates for inclusion. Their role is to participate in town and school events to shine the spotlight on their abilities and show how inclusion can work more robustly in our community.
