Embarc’s goal is to drive student success with long-term social and cultural exposure. Through the transformative power of these journeys, the goal is to awaken students to the possibilities of their potential by dissolving the borders of the city and in their minds. This is done through a three-year, three-level approach that supplies students with myriad positive models of success.
