Community Action Network Mission
Community Action Network for Epilepsy establishes volunteer groups across the country. The groups support individuals living with epilepsy by enabling and advancing the mission of the Epilepsy Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
Involvement where you live and work creates partnerships that raise awareness about epilepsy and the programs the Foundation provides. You can support those with epilepsy by bringing programs and services directly into your communities. Whether it’s creating awareness, informing people about services, discovering new fundraising opportunities, or participating in innovation and public policy advocacy, these powerful Community Action Networks build lasting relationships in your neighborhood.
Th Epilepsy Foundation Kids Crew is growing. We created the Kids Crew to help kids raise epilepsy awareness, educate others, share their stories about epilepsy, and join in events. The program is free and is for ages 14 and under.
At the Kids Crew, we want kids to use their imagination and think creatively. We also recognize there are some who need a little help. We think every child has unique, special gifts that can be harnessed to improve people's lives. We want kids to come up with ideas that impact their communities. Doing so promotes teamwork, helps kids learn more about epilepsy, and gives them confidence.
Our belief is that kids can use their talents to give back to others and to make a real difference. For more information and to join, click here.
More than Epilepsy
What kids learn in the Kids Crew will help them in many areas of their lives. At the Crew, we respect others, never judge one another, and believe every kid is important. We also promote self-confidence and let kids know that they have the power to follow their dreams. As Hailey from the Kids Crew says, “Kids can change the world. So let’s do it now!”
