Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Arts Education, Children & Youth, Education, Educational Services, Soccer, Sports, Youth Development Programs

Mission: AERW mission is to assist refugees and the economically challenged, and underserved to become self sufficient productive members of their communities.

Results: AERW project is being expanded upon. Last year we launched the successful inaugural Audacia Center of Excellence Football Club (ACE FC) 2015 Soccer and Basic Life Skills Camp with 55 student participants ages 7 to 18. This year we are implementing the Audacia Center for Excellence STEAM2 Discovery and Tutorial afterschool program. With increased funding, we will double the number of participants in the camp program. In addition, with adequate funding, we could extend the population of our Summer Camp to include other struggling populations in our community. In the afterschool program, we are expecting to serve 70+ refugees who currently attend the Dayton Public Schools. The afterschool program will be sustained through yearly revision of curriculum based upon analysis of student achievement. Yearly, we will improve our program to better serve our population. The camp will enhance curricular delivery with a STEAM2 Life Skills focus, using the sport of soccer to appeal to student participant interest. The acquisition of life skills like communication, decision-making, character development, leadership, innovation, and goal-setting will enable students to become more competent and self-sufficient, thereby enhancing their quality of life. We will sustain this program by building upon prior years’ successes to increase productivity for our children.

Target demographics: AERW helps the underserved refugee members of our community.

I like to thank your organization for helping my family get accustom to the American school system. Without your help my kids would have been lost. Also, not only did Audacia help us with school but they went out their way to help us with our everyday needs. Everyone needs to be aware of your organization and need to support it. Shout out to the founder Kimberly Arnold!
