I have first hand experience with ACE. As a nonprofit ACE priorities the needs and challanges of African refugee children and increasingly entire families through outreach and programs for adults and small children. I find iACE to be a leader in how best to integrate these amazing refugees while still maintaining and respecting their cultures. THE
ACE'S concentration on help children with their studies through tutoring is invaluable in helping them to succeed and flourish here. I am grateful to have discovered this nonprofit and to help to service it's mission .

I have volunteered at ACE since the winter. It is such a wonderful experience and I have learned so much. The children are wonderful and so adaptable. The staff is generous and always giving. I was so lucky to find this non-profit because it has help me so much, as much as i hopen i help the children. The many cultures that are part of Africa are fascinating and the many stories the children have are both heartwarming and heart-wrenching. I strongly recommend anybody to volunteer at ACE as it is so important that we integrate and welcome all the refugees in America that we get from very difficult and troubled countries. It has been so valuable for me and so rewarding.

I worked at ACE from 2006 to 2010 as a volunteer, a mentor, education coordinator and a teacher. ACE is a wonderful program that is fill with many young ideas willing to put into action. The kids are very respectful, honest and are always full of 360 degree kinetic energy. They have so much power, will, love, care and respect. It was an honored to have served them having been a refugee myself.

The work that ACE (African Community Education program) does for Worcester is meaningful. It supports the youth with their schooling in a way that the schools could not keep up with. They provide a place where the students can go to get help with their homework and also support them them emotionally. It gives them a place where they can meet others coming from similar backgrounds. They can learn English with others of their own age in a comfortable surrounding. I enjoy visiting ACE and watching the youth and their teachers interacting.
