ACES is a 19-years strong after-school tutor/mentor program.We operate at two schools in Minneapolis - Green Central and Jenny Lind. We are in three school in St. Paul - Farnsworth, Hazel Park, and Monroe.We work with 4th - 8th grade students to conquer the fourth grade slump (going from "learning to read" to "reading to learn").We focus on the ABC's of ACES: Academics, Behavior, Community. We aim to broaden students' opportunities & experiences through service-learning projects and field trips.Our approach works! Students who consistently attend ACES show academic growth, improved behavior and school attendance, and increased indentiy with their community.
Mission: The mission of ACES is to close the academic achievement gap of at-risk inner-city students in grades four through eight.
