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.
