African Community Education assists African refugee and immigrant youth and families in achieving educational success and socio-economic stability through access to academic support, leadership development, cultural expression, and community outreach.

We believe and invest in the transformative powers of education, mentorship, and access to opportunities. Through impactful programming and relationship building, we provide what kids and families need to succeed - the knowledge people are in their corner, eye-opening experiences, and the creativity to imagine a brighter future.

For youth ages 10 and up, ACE hosts After School, Saturday, Mentoring, Summer Reading, and Workforce Development Programs. Through these programs, ACE provides access to tutoring, supplemental classroom time, experiential learning activities, and one-on-one mentoring which help students succeed academically. ACE also serves as a liaison between the student, family, and local public schools to ensure each student’s home and school lives provide environments for success.

For parents of our students, ACE provides English as Second Language and Citizenship classes as part of our Family Education Program along with wraparound outreach services to help families access needed services and benefits. Through this work, we have changed the lives of thousands of African refugees and immigrants.

ACE Gala

The Annual ACE Gala is African Community Education’s signature event of the year.

This year’s Gala will take place on Thursday, November 12 and has been imagined as a virtual event.

The event will include a fashion show with ACE students, live-streamed music and dance performances, raffles, guest speakers, and more.

Our goal for this year's Gala is to raise $75,000 to support ACE kids and families. Achieving this goal would mark a truly transformational campaign for our organization, helping us to expand our services to reach more of the 20,000 African-born immigrants and refugees in Worcester, MA.

You can support our efforts by buying tickets, donating, or even setting up your own fundraising page on behalf of the kids at ACE.
