What is ACES?
Adults Committed to Educating Student (ACES) is an on-going partnership between Students, Mentors, Parents, BBBS, Schools, Businesses, and the Kansas City Community.
This program encourages students to pursue the path to college and career success and provides student-centered programming focused on career education, career planning, and career development. Through creating a pipeline of access to resources through our mentors, corporate sponsors and community partners, the ACES program is committed to equipping Littles with the necessary tools to become competent for the 21st Century workplace.
Students will receive career education and assistance through monthly workshops including topics on career readiness, academic preparation, and post-secondary education. Students will also have access to career exploration workshops, individual and group job shadowing sessions, internship placement, and employment assistance through partnerships with local business and organizations.
