The EMBRACE curriculum is taught for the weeks following the event to the youth in order to build multi-cultural leaders with character and values while addressing issues of racial reconciliation, education, literacy, substance abuse and violence.
E..M.B.R.A.C.E. is an acronym for:
Embracing Memories: Based on the axiom "those who forget their history are bound to repeat it", children learn about past acts of racism.
Breaking Racism: This section brings racial reconciliation through acknowledgment, repentance, forgiveness and mutual respect. This includes exercises and open-minded discussion which requires our children to reconsider their own beliefs.
Accepting Cultures & Ethnicites: Raising up multi-cultural leaders. Building self-respect, respect for others and achieving common community goals through Embracism by training children to identify and implement character and universal values.
