    EMBARC is an organization that provides community-based support to refugees and immigrant students in Iowa. BHCGA awarded $20,000 to assist EMBARC in a collaborative project to address the need for more accessible and culturally appropriate post-secondary transition guidance for high school refugee and immigrant students and meaningful preparation for pre-service teachers. With the funding from BHCGA, EMBARC will create and implement a sustainable curriculum and programming to support K-12 refugee and immigrant students (RIS) in school and post-graduation. It will also go toward preparing pre-service K-12 teachers at UNI for the unique needs of future RIS through practical experience.
