Barry was the highlight of our event, he was inspiring to a wide range of people from youth to seniors. He understands how people learn and presents it in a fun environment. Barry was able to relate his message to our organization in a way that he captures you from beginning to end. — Angie Kerfont, Communities in Schools
What is the EPICworld™ Initiative?
EPICworld Initiative™ supports grassroots youth, social enterprise and community development; working with schools and community centers, companies and community agencies alike… in the arenas of social discourse and action. We are talking and walking community service, dynamism and growth. Our focus is the spirit of youth and how we engage at school, work and community… to advance whole communities that truly flourish and prosper. Our intent is to be a source of social good as we believe and contend that our true merit lies in service and virtue.
The EPIC Electric™
The EPIC Electric™ is our digital initiative. Epic Engage™ on You Tube serves as a beach head and starting point for The EPICworld Initiative™ and is an environment of encouragement and service, of connection and cool. It is for youth and those who work with youth; educators, entrepreneurs and emerging leaders alike. There, you will find hundreds of videos to engage character education and leadership, and have some fun in the process. Intrigued? You should be.

Exploring Character and Culture through Clay… Barry and Epic Engage™ are teaming up with Jamie Lynn McCabe and The Clay Cafe to offer ARTaffects™, a program that explores building strong cultures at work and community through character and clay. This is a remarkable program for couples, families, communities, youth centers, organizations and businesses of all shapes and sizes. It is fun, engaging and has long term traction for building cultures of strength and caring alike.
With ARTaffects™, you and your family or team or community work and play with clay to identify, understand and celebrate your individual and collective strengths. You spend time with yourself and others to creative emotive symbols of your team culture that represent you and those with whom you live, work and play. The art of the clay affects our understanding of ourselves at work and life.
Here, we explore the work around character strengths and building cool, strong and caring cultures… together. Then, we get creating. Everyone leaves with a piece o themselves in hand and a collective piece of the team around which to rally and go forward. Creativity and unity are commonly explored and uncommonly achieved. Working together to craft stronger cultures at work, school and community — that is ARTaffects™.
2. The Mac Green Community Construction Project™
This initiative is dedicated to Barry’s dad; Malcolm (Mac) George Green. Through it, we are helping to build what we call STRONG CENTERS™ which draw upon the work of the global Virtues Project™ … bringing leadership training to leaders and youth in community centers, not-for-profit organizations and youth services and agencies alike… with community accessible rates and platforms. It serves youth, parents and educators with a program focused on character development and building STRONG™ youth; equipped to address bullying and other challenges in school and life and advanced in character leadership to affect real change in the community at large. It is systemic and culture building; no “one off” approaches here. We work to build Certified STRONG CENTERS™; delivering with high end Virtues Project™ and associated training. We dig deep and we build high, and certify you to deliver in your own space. Connect with us today.
3. The EPIC Force™ starting in 2018
In addition, EPICworld™ will offer a team of trained communiteers, known as The EPIC Force™, engaged in serving the greater community and trained in the 5 Strategies of The Virtues Project™. We will help to advance heroic character leadership to build inspired strength, unity, resourcefulness and excellence at school, work, business and community. The EPIC Force™ is love and service in action. Here is a team of people committed to random but strategic and coordinated acts of helpfulness… a kind of volunteer SWAT Team of Service. We will engage and deliver on STRONG STREETZ Food Runs™, WINDdancer Song and Dance™, HUGZ and MUGZ™ and more to serve the community, with youth. The emphasis is on building esteem for ourselves and others, discovering who we each are best walking our path of service; cool, compassionate and STRONG™.
