EPIK (Encouraging Programming In Kids) is a voluntary Kent based Mozilla youth group for geeky youths and their families. EPIK’s focus is to encourage programming, this both within a technical context and also as developing social skills through peer to peer collaborative projects which we wrap in Arts Award.
in 2015 we are focusing on our teens to get them to experience and meet the industry by hosting events at technical conferences where they get to meet the experts, ask questions and in some cases offered summer volunteering and internship opportunities to help them make an informed choice pre degree or apprenticeship path.
