The mission of The Embracing Project is to awaken the social conscience of those youths caught in violent situations throughout the Las Vegas Valley. We do so by engaging youth through educational services, enrichment activities, leadership opportunities, and unconditional support.
Youth and Families receiving services provided by TEP will receive unlimited support and guidance through means of advocacy, food distribution, and referrals to social services. Youth are also provided violence awareness education and counseling as their positive choices-making & conflict resolution, social and educational skills are developed.
Rehabilitated Youth become involved in leadership development opportunities including training in: mentorship, public speaking, workforce skills, etiquette, and entrepreneurship opportunities. Additionally, Youth are invited to partake in an annual international humanitarian internship on scholarship. While abroad participants will be exposed to cultural norms and a criminal justice system much different than our own, as well as doing their part to give back.
At the Embracing Project, we feel that the testimonies of today’s Youth will open the door to start juvenile justice reforms.
