General

 

What makes the SAC different from other organizations?

ACE is unique in its approach by promoting student-led programming. The students facilitate and drive the classes through guided collaborative conversations. ACE teaching methods are based on case studies, group collaboration and frank conversations with minimal lecturing. ACE staff and coaches are there to emphasize the lessons learned through the student driven activities. This approach allows students to real time and real life issues in a safe and secure environment which prepares them to be able to better navigate adversity in their own lives. They also develop the soft skills necessary to successfully work on a team. These skills carry over to their lives in sports, school and the workforce. The ACE scope of work is unique by designing programs for The SAC based on what the students have communicated their needs are and providing wrap around services for each student. The SAC provides the unique opportunity for students from various backgrounds, interests and expertise to come together to learn and work towards a common goal. This approach makes the ACE program and SAC unique and successful.

The SAC differs from other programs by listening and adapting to the needs of the students. This targeted approach allows us to offer programs that are interesting and important to the students which makes them engaged and excited about the skills they are learning.
