Review for African Community Education Program, Worcester, MA, USA
I've worked as a teacher for STEM, Math, English, and as a basketball coach in ACE's Saturday program. I've also worked as a basketball coach and summer reading teacher for ACE's summer program. There are so many ways ACE helps students and their families. For students, ACE has a Saturday programs, after-school program, and summer program that provide year-round support for students to help integrate within the US school system, and eventually excel and go to college. These academic programs are also project-oriented and focused on making learning fun! Our Saturday program has gone on many field trips to different colleges in Worcester (Clark, QCC, WPI, Assumption), the Boston Museum of Science, a scavenger hunt of Boston historical landmarks, Mt. Wachusett, and others.
ACE also provides support for student families, including family education and outreach. ACE's events like the fall gala and spring festival promote a sense of community with students, families, staff, and ACE leadership.
The enthusiasm of the staff, including program coordinators, teachers, volunteers, board members, grant writers and others is top-notch. Everyone at ACE is really dedicated to the mission of helping ACE students succeed!
