ACE does amazing work in the Worcester community and their reach is far beyond what you would expect. 94% of ACE students are classified as 'low income' and 84% are English Language Learners. The perseverance of these students is truly remarkable and ACE staff and volunteers encourage and empower them at every turn!

Over the past few years, I have connected with ACE staff, students and volunteers through soccer. The ACE community contributes immensely our Cultural Exchange through Soccer organization with volunteers at big events, players for scrimmages and testimony & lobbying for more fields in Worcester. Outside of all that they contribute to our organization and our city at large, they are a beautiful, loving family that I am so grateful to be welcomed into.
