Mission: Our sole mission is to help reduce the academic achievement gap in the twin cities and improve the futures for at-risk students. At aces, we know learning can best happen when kids are engaged and happy so weve partnered with the minnesota lynx, timberwolves, twins, vikings, united fc and wild to support our work. In fact, were proud to be the first, and only, organization of its kind in the twin cities to have the direct support of every major minnesota professional sports team.
Programs: Aces programming includes hands-on, project based activities and dedicated academic support while focusing on the three critical components of educational development: academics, behavior and community. These are the abcs of aces. Students who consistently attend aces show academic growth, improved school attendance and behavior, and increased community identity.
