EMBRACE COLLECTIVE™ members will acquire the knowledge, mindsets, and dispositions to flourish in the 21st century. The EMBRACE COLLECTIVE™ takes the intellectual, social, emotional, and civic development of our children beyond the classroom. Regardless of whether they move directly into college or a career, all members will be successfully equipped with the proverbial toolkit to take on life’s challenges.
Productive citizenship requires clear and effective communication skills. Active listening seems to be a lost art, yet it is critical to civil discourse. This art combined with critical thinking allow us to hear others’ points of view, empathize with diverse perspectives, develop our own ideas based on evidence, and collectively expand our thinking. The willingness to persuade and be persuaded are evidence of a well-rounded mind and emotional intelligence.
Sometimes the best place to learn is wherever you are. Our remote offerings give members the opportunity to demonstrate and enhance their critical thinking and civil discourse skills. The EMBRACE™ virtual community allows people across geographical boundaries to come together and grow beyond the limitations of physical locations.
