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.
There are some powerful systems in place that prevent students from succeeding – violence, segregation, institutionalized racism, poverty, and underfunded schools and programs. These not only create real and visible barriers to success, but they work to impede the growth of youth psychologically as well.

It takes action in response to emergencies and at the same time promotes respect for international humanitarian law and its implementation in national law.

Every day in Syria, volunteer rescue workers from the White Helmets rush to the scenes of bombings to pull people out from under the rubble and carry them to safety. Their courageous and selfless work has given hope to millions of civilians.
The White Helmets are an unlikely group of heroes. These former tailors, bakers, teachers and other ordinary Syrians banded together in 2013 to save the lives others were working so hard to take. They have now saved more than 78,529 lives. But for the work they do, White Helmet volunteers and their civil defence centres are often targeted. Russian and Syrian regime planes bomb civilians, and then they circle back bomb the rescue workers and medical workers who come to help.
