A high school experiential learning program, an unlikely trip to the Arctic and the power of song. Two Chicago youth set off on a life-changing journey.

Thanks to a collaboration between three experiential education organizations – Darkspark, Students On Ice and Embarc, Life Into Lyrics documents two inner-city students from Chicago on a powerful journey from the Arctic to Toronto, leading to a conversation with President Barack Obama and an EP – a testament to the power of art, education and investing in youth.
