  1. Individual Mentoring Program:

The individual mentoring program pairs an individual from Burma with an individual from America. The pair agrees to meet multiple times per month at a time to be determined by the pair. This program is perfect for someone who has a flexible schedule and who is willing to commit to a year-long, meaningful program working in a one-on-one environment.

  1. Family Mentoring Program:

The family mentoring program (called "FISH") is designed for American families to be paired with families from Burma. This program is very unique and special and was even started by families before EMBARC was officially a nonprofit agency! FISH families meet as often as needed. This partnership may participate in English practice in the home and other long-term goals involving the whole family system.
