Elevating People In Construction- School of the Craft

Unlocking Potential Within Our Youth

E.P.I.C. Opportunity

At Epic -School of the craft, we provide youth with a construction trade program that helps at-risk youth to obtain their G.E.D. while actively learning construction. We strive to provide greater opportunities to youth aged 16-24 that comes from under represented communities. We engage with the community by allowing the youth to give back with building homes for the elderly and veterans. We also offer different connections if students decide to further their education.

Foundation: E.P.I.C’s Story

E.P.I.C. was founded by Walter Hosley Sr.

“I didn’t have a real interest in furthering my education. It was my father, Charlie Hosley who saw this and worked with me on gaining skills in home improvement. This gave me a trade that stayed with me to help support myself. As I got older I was able to see the methods, my father instilled in me.

I knew then, that I had to share these methods with others.”

I'm confident that E.P.I.C. will empower and inspire youth to apply newly developed skills to build productive lives in our communities.”

"Empowering change, one Tool at a time”

-Mr. Hosley

When I searched for a school that could help my son get his G.E.D., I was excited to find Epic Sotc. I was not disappointed. The curriculum is comprehensive and challenging, but the staff is friendly and helpful. My son loves being a student at Epic Sotc.
