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!

EFEPA Community Arts 


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!

The EFEPA understands that epilepsy affects the whole family. While each diagnosis is unique, so too are the impacts on each member of the family – caregivers, parents, and siblings alike.

As a caretaker for a child with epilepsy, you know first-hand how much energy goes into managing your loved one’s diagnosis, along with your family’s busy schedule. You’ve likely seen too, how your child’s epilepsy has impacted their siblings, both long-term and on a daily basis.

We assembled these Superstar Sibling boxes with the hopes of offering additional resources to support families with multiple children, to shed light on the impact that epilepsy has on the whole family, to arm siblings with socio-emotional tools, and to remind caregivers that there are thousands of families across our region, just like yours, raising children with epilepsy.

To request a Superstar Sibling Box for your child, simply fill out the request form HERE. Superstar Sibling Boxes are free of charge, thanks in part to our generous Superstar Siblings sponsor, Marinus.
