Join Student ACES in making these ACE Students Dreams a Reality!
Student ACES was founded to create a pathway for every student to achieve the highest standards of leadership. The inspiration for Student ACES stemmed from their desire to see every student achieve a foundation of leadership and character education that would generate positive outcomes and tremendous successes in their the students' lives.
Over the past 5 years, Student ACES has grown exponentially and over that time has learned that each community served needs different opportunities for success. Through candid conversations with the students in "The Glades" it became apparent that these high schoolers needed and wanted a safe environment so that they could excel in their academic and athletic endeavors while learning and applying critical life skills. With that became the vision for The Student ACES Center. Students in "The Glades" face great trauma and hardships daily and because of gang involvement, drug abuse and crime students do not feel safe within their community. Student ACES is ready to combat these hardships by providing a safe place where they can go to learn, train and socialize. More than that, the Student ACE Center will be a place where students will be held to a code of conduct and be taught the ACE Values:
• Commanding Respect
• Earning Trust
• Winning Attitude
• Sacrifice for Self and Other
• Hard Work and Perseverance
• Ethical and Moral Behavior
Programs at the The Student ACE Center: Life Skills, My Career Shines, Mental Health First Aid, Academic Support, Athletic Support and Navigation, Time-Management, Personal Business Plans, Health Education, Communication, Violence Prevention, Resilience, Public Speaking, Character and Leadership Courses, Apprenticeship, Workshops, Career Field Trips, STEM Training, Trades Training and Community Involvement.
