2020 IMPACT PROJECT
The EPIC team and Strategic Play Group, Ltd. joined together to facilitate a project for United Way/Home for Good. During this project the participants were highly engaged in a day filled with building creative solutions to tackle homelessness issues in Santa Barbara County, using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods. By using this 3D thinking approach, innovative ideas emerged with an action plan.
2019 IMPACT PROJECT: School On Wheels provides free tutoring, mentoring and school supplies to children from kindergarten through twelfth grade, living in shelters, motels, vehicles, group foster homes, and the streets of Southern California. The EPIC team guided participating staff members through creative problem-solving techniques to help identify new areas of breakthrough in working with their volunteers. Participants were able to learn and share how they each uniquely approach problem solving and how understanding this can improve team dynamics.
