Achievement through Community Education & Support (ACES)

We are a fun-focused student mentoring program helping 8th – 12th graders within Lorain County to navigate challenges and barriers detrimental to their academic, social, emotional, and career growth.

Students are supported as needed during, after school, evenings and on weekends. ACES also manages a chat room ensuring we are always available to students.

Our program runs year round.

About the ACES Program

Students will complete group and individual challenges, learning to control emotions and behaviors that could ultimately hinder their academic and social progress.

They are taught how to implement this new-found control to reach short/long term goals via hands-on, goal oriented, role playing, critical thinking scenarios and community service.

The ACES program empowers students to experiment and adopt behaviors that generate positive results.
