EPACENTER prioritizes families in financial need. We provide access to free and low-cost classes and internships in many creative fields for youth and young adults who have been historically disenfranchised from economic opportunities.

How do I register? After the registration links are live, you may register online or in person at EPACENTER Tuesdays to Fridays from 12-6:30 pm. 

How do I pay the supply fee? If you pay in person, we accept exact cash only. Otherwise, our preferred payment method is by debit or credit card online.

What is your refund and credit policy? For a full refund, you can cancel your enrollment up until the first day of class.  EPACENTER does not issue refunds for classes after the first day of class begins. Within the first two weeks of classes, parents can request a credit for any class they want to cancel.  After two weeks, no credits will be given back if a student wants to quit a class.

Our Model

EPACENTER practices Creative Youth Development (CYD) as its approach to youth engagement. By combining project-based learning opportunities and development skills, CYD amplifies youth success in adolescence and into adulthood. Research has shown that young people in CYD programs experience increased self-esteem, a sense of belonging, and support youth as they are active agents of their own change.
