The EPI Methodology

How does EPI empower youth to see themselves as leaders capable of inspiring change on global environmental issues? By providing immersive educational programming that produces real conservation outcomes, fosters a scientific mindset, and cultivates a love of nature. 

A Sustainable 


EPI deepens its impact through strategic programming. Leadership programs provide alumni a platform to engage with environmental issues and policies. Professional development programs improve classroom science education, and institutional partnerships bridge the divide between researchers and local communities.
