ACCESSING CHOICES IN EDUCATION
The ACE Program, Accessing Choices in Education, is proudly supported by a demonstration grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Dedicated to empowering Native American youth in grades K-12, the ACE Program is committed to ensuring that they have access to a wealth of educational resources.
Our overarching objective is to extend our services to more than 165 Native American youth across the state of Arkansas, fostering opportunities for academic growth and personal development. We partner with organizations offering diverse academic, career, cultural, and mental health services, covering the costs to remove financial barriers. ACE students receive a budget and ACE bucks to access services until the grant maxes out annually. Our goal is to serve 165+ Native American youth in Arkansas, currently providing 25+ services through 15 Service Providers, with plans to expand annually to meet evolving needs.
