Epicentr is a Vancouver-based organization that focuses on providing students with hands-on opportunities to learn, grow and develop their passions for social media.

Founded back in 2013, Epicentr was previously known as Vancouver’s first student-run social media agency. We have since evolved into an academy program for university students and young professionals wanting to break into the Marketing and Communication industry.

Directors Angela and Orane wanted to create a program that was taught by the industry, for the industry. We make sure that we equip participants with the skills needed for success while building a strong community of digital warriors.

And that’s how the idea for Epicentr Academy was born.

It's spelled 'orange without the G'.

All work and no play is no fun in life.
