8112_m.jpgAlexi and Tennille have started a series of school and university guest teacher appearances for E.P.I.C. In them, the founders share their experiences in Tanzania with each class, encouraging the students to recognize the advantages of their own circumstances, and to look further into ways that they can contribute to either the Ripple Project, or any other project that personally speaks to them and promotes positive change.

Actual video footage from the trips made to Tanzania is shown at the schools, as well as the founders opening up the floor to any questions that the students may have. Some of the schools that have already welcomed and housed these talks are, Pepperdine University (Malibu, California), Hunter College CUNY (New York), Vineland Elementary, and Margate Middle School (both in New Jersey).

E.P.I.C. also plans on working with as many high schools as possible nationwide to distribute the prestigious E.P.I.C. Award at the end of the participants' senior year. Students who are interested in applying for the award will raise money and awareness for any project of their choice, and at the conclusion of it, will submit a detailed account of the work carried out, as well as providing E.P.I.C. with details of their achieved results. E.P.I.C. will carefully review and consider all submissions, and will choose the most innovative and successful applicant from each participating state.
