Youth Achieve

Want to keep the magic of summer camp alive all year round? Through Youth Achieve, children and teens with epilepsy can remain active members of their local community, and keep in touch with camp friends, no matter the season!

Youth Achieve is the EFEPA’s way of keeping our camp community involved and engaged with quarterly in-person events throughout Eastern Pennsylvania to raise awareness, keep youth connected to their support networks, build friendships, have fun, and assist the Foundation in our mission to end epilepsy. In addition to our in-person events, we’ll periodically host virtual events to help youth stay connected with friends no matter where they live!

In addition to having fun, what will Youth Achieve members do?

  • Create opportunities for youth leadership and networking
  • Apply personal skills and interests to create real world experiences
  • Make a difference in the lives of people with epilepsy
  • Serve as representatives for local EFEPA events
  • Learn more about epilepsy and what others are doing to help
  • Reach out to key political leaders about the importance of epilepsy awareness

Youth Achieve is your way to show Pennsylvania, and the world, what the power of youth can do!

Still have questions? For more information on how to get involved, please contact our Camp & Community Outreach Coordinator, Andrew Chmielowiec at achmielowiec@efepa.org and (215) 629-5003 x103.

EFEPA Community Arts 


Holiday Greeting Card Art Contest

For the first time in over a decade, the EFEPA is sending out holiday greeting cards, and we need your help!

We’re calling on artists (all ages and abilities) to submit colorful artwork that captures the magic of the holiday season and helps spread epilepsy pride and awareness. Art submissions should be detailed, full color, seasonally festive, and free of religious symbols or imagery. Selected artists will have their artwork featured on the front of a greeting card, as well as an artist credit, headshot and short biography on the inside of the cards, which will be used as thank-you gifts for donors, fundraisers for EFEPA programs, and as our main means of correspondence this holiday season.

Have questions? Need more information? Ready to submit your artwork? Please contact our Camp & Community Outreach Coordinator, Andrew Chmielowiec, at achmielowiec@efepa.org or (215) 629-5003 x103.


Want to be part of a EFEPA history, and help spread epilepsy awareness at the same time, all from the comfort of home?

Join us, and fellow members of our local epilepsy community, in the first ever Community Arts Button Making Campaign! We’ll be pressing hundreds of EFEPA Buttons that will feature your original artwork! These buttons will be used as ‘Thank You’ gifts for donors and community partners, giveaways for EFEPA events, and more – all featuring the creativity and dedication of our local epilepsy warriors, advocates, and champions!

How does it work?

  1. Fill out this short form to request some button templates, which we’ll mail directly to you! You’ll receive a packet in the mail with everything you need to get started.
  2. Get creative! Design, create, and color your buttons right on the template pages. You can draw pictures, doodle, share words of wisdom, or whatever else you’re inspired to make.
  3. When your templates are complete, mail them back to us using the pre-addressed, pre-stamped envelope included in your packet.
  4. We’ll take it from here! When your templates arrive at the EFEPA, our team of staff and volunteers will press them in buttons, email you pictures of the final products you’ve created, and your buttons will be used to raise awareness in future EFEPA events!
