Program Description

The Idea

Embarc is a three-year program that provides community-driven, experienced-based learning opportunities to low-income High School students to inspire and prepare them for college and career success.

Embarc's goal is to drive student success with long-term social and cultural exposure. Through the transformative power of these journeys, we awaken students to the possibilities of their potential by dissolving the borders of the city and in their minds. We do this through a three-year, three-level approach to journeying with the integration of our own curriculum.

How Does Embarc Work?

By supplying students with myriad positive models of success, journeying out of their neighborhoods to directly engage with the cultural and commercial worlds in our city, Embarc lays out the practical steps necessary for students to move towards their dreams.
