VI. Administrative Fee
The true cost of the Embark experience is over $2,000 per participant. However, New Memphis receives generous support from corporations, foundations and individuals to significantly offset that cost, safeguarding a level playing field.
Embark participants pay an administrative fee of $450 for the entire three month experience
to help ensure a top quality experience.
We do not want this fee to prevent qualified applicants from participating.
As such, this fee can be paid over time, and a range of payment options are available. Unquestionably, the value of the experience far exceeds the fee.
VII. Commitment to 100% Participation
Full participation of each member of the cohort is crucial to the Embark experience. As such, attendance is not optional, but mandatory. Please carefully consider each of the schedules below and indicate which set of dates you would prefer. (Note: There may be slight variations in these dates, due to changes in facilitation.) Contact Calinda Dickerson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you have about sessions.
Please select your class preference
Fall Cohort #1
: Meets Thursday from 6:00-9:00pm.
Fall Cohort #2
: Meets Tuesday from 6:00-9:00pm.
No preference; either cohort will work
to view the schedules.
