Students on Ice Expedition
Uncharted believes that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and the best type of education for our future leaders is through experience. That’s why Uncharted’s proud to support Students on Ice (SOI), a Canadian nonprofit that takes youth from around the world on life changing journeys to the Polar Regions.
Vicki and Bruce Heyman joined the SOI Arctic expedition in August 2017, bringing two Chicago students along with them. As Vicki says, “The trip was a super-charged frenetic learning experience and the nature was awe-inspiring. One hundred and twenty youth and 80 adults—Inuit elders, scientists, artists, teachers, psychologists, government officials—were on the ship as it traveled the waters of the far north. Everyone in this floating international community was pushed outside of their comfort zones as we all worked to create a connected, diverse family.”
Uncharted is proud to have sent two more Chicago Embarc students on the SOI journey in 2018 and looks forward to hearing stories from their travels.
