The Student ACES Center
To support the work of Student ACES, Bank of America recently donated their bank building for complete renovation in turning it into the Student ACES Center or The SAC. Through the efforts of staff, community leaders and mentors, The SAC will provide leadership, academic and athletic support for High School ACE students in the Glades area. The SAC provides learning pathways, many of which were suggested by the students themselves, to build concrete knowledge on the hot topics that students will face within their current life and future experiences.
A Safe, Stable and Nurturing Environment
The SAC consists of a community of learners, building a foundation to support and promote the personal, educational and professional development of every ACE student, honoring their individual and collective talents and strengths. The SAC is open after school daily and is a place where high school students work to become outstanding, contributing members of their teams, schools, neighborhoods and communities.
Glades Student Grant Association
Through an RFP process, Student ACES youth, known as the Glades Student Grant-Making Association (GSGA) awarded grant dollars to support initiatives designed to improve conditions leading to a healthy, youth-centered community. Thanks to Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, the students funded 6 local organizations!
Youth Empowerment Center
The Student ACES Center is the new home of the Belle Glade Youth Empowerment Center. The Youth Empowerment Center provides activities and services to at risk youth in Belle Glade. The YEC focuses on empowering youth, promoting education, promoting health, promoting leadership and community involvement.
