In a world that is increasingly growing more cross-cultural and multicultural on a day-to-day basis, EMBRACE is a youth movement that unifies the human race.  It is a movement that focuses on the oneness of the human race while respecting diversity.  EMBRACE helps youth adjust to and thrive in this growing interdependence.  Through events and curriculum emphasizing the unity of the American Dream that brought us all together as well as the need for racial reconciliation, EMBRACE charts a future course of peace and unity for generations to come.  Instead of racism, EMBRACISM spearheads a new wave of thinking for our youth.  
If you contact us, we will come out and educate your youth on diversity, racial reconciliation, unity and thriving in a multicultural society. Please contact us.
