ACE (Afterschool Centers on Education)

The Bridge Between Learning and Life

ACE (Afterschool Centers on Education) is a grant-funded program intended to serve low-income, at-risk students by providing rigorous out-of-school learning programs to help improve academic performance/grades, school attendance, positive behavior, and student engagement.

At YES Prep, the grant has provided students opportunities to practice dance, cooking, chess, robotics, TV Broadcasting, Sports Management, D.I.Y. (Do-It-Yourself) club, off-season sports, Athletic study hall, college prep, and much more. Through ACE, we've also offered opportunities for parents and guardians, including ESL, parenting classes, workshops through Crime Stoppers of Houston, cooking classes with Houston Food Bank, and campus cultural heritage celebrations.
