The African Community Education Program has had such an incredible impact on my life, where can I even begin? I started volunteering with ACE my freshman year of college and literally could not stop until I moved to a different city. That is the effect that the organization's enthusiastic staff and incredibly dedicated, inspiring, and endearing students have on those they come into contact with. Even after relocating I still have a strong connection with ACE and feel it's impact every day. I can confidently say that had I not been a member of such a welcoming, supportive, and all around amazing community, I would not be where I am today. ACE helped me to become much more culturally competent, compassionate, and understanding. The organization, staff, and students also enabled me to become a better volunteer, leader, teacher, and role model to all students I may come into contact with in the future. I strongly and actively encourage people to volunteer with ACE or to get involved in whatever way possible because of the profound gifts that the program has given me. The staff is incredibly supportive, enthusiastic, and open, the students are unbelievably eager to learn, inspiring, and hard-working, and the program is a blast. The stories I have from volunteering with ACE are stories I will never forget and have had an impact that will last a lifetime. I can only hope that I have positively impacted students even a fraction of how much they have positively impacted me.
