Mission Statement

The Embracing Project is a 501c3 nonprofit headquartered in Las Vegas with a mission of promoting peace and global consciousness through programs serving youth at risk from conflict, distancing them from violence, and building humanitarian and peace building skills.

Description

The Embracing Project is a 501c3 nonprofit established and headquartered in Las Vegas since 2007. The organization motto is "Healing the World Together." Programs and services focus on self-development of youth that enhances young lives through workshops and experiences that encourage a spirit of global citizenship and incorporate mind, body, spirit, and practical/vocational opportunities. This work focuses on engagement and mentoring of even the most at-risk youth within the Nevada juvenile justice system. In all cases, we work to help at-risk youth experience healing, become productive community members, and develop attitudes and behaviors defined by civic responsibility and humanitarian service. We have three main initiatives: (1) "Compassionate Healing," a conflict/violence intervention and peace building journey that includes the FREE to Choose workshop/training; (2) "Serve with Us," through which at-risk youth participate in volunteer humanitarian travel (for instance, to work in orphanages and clinics in Liberia); and (3) "Center for Peace - Las Vegas," founded by The Embracing Project, where local nonprofits collaborate to provide wrap-around services for at-risk youth.
