Camp P.U.L.S.E. was founded with a profound desire to empower youth to live their ideals and to take ownership of their place in the world. P.U.L.S.E. began in 2016 by ALPHA Education, a non-profit education organization and registered charity located in Toronto, Canada. Its mission is to foster awareness for the history of WWII in Asia, in the interest of furthering the values of justice, peace, and reconciliation.
