EPIC Youth & Teen Programs
EPIC logoOur EPIC youth and teen programs offer free and low-cost activities that help build positive relationships in the community as well as reduce or prevent involvement in crime, gangs, and drugs. 

Nominate a youth for the ACMCYA Awards!
Adams County Mayors and Commissioners Youth Awards recognize youth in grades 6-12, up to age 20, who have overcome personal adversity, created positive changes in their environments, or who have contributed in their own way towards making their lives or communities a better place in which to live. To nominate a teen, download an application or call (303) 289-3764 for more information.
