ACE (Afterschool Centers on Education)

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. 

At YES Prep, the grant has provided students opportunities to practice dance, cheer, cooking, chess, robotics, TV Broadcasting, Sports Management, off season soccer, Athletic Study Hall, 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 Thanksgiving & Cultural Heritage Potluck Reunions.

"ACE is a great way to get the kids and parents involved. Not only do those programs provide entertainment for students, they also provide skills that will help them interact with others and engage in leadership roles in the future."

Carolina Acosta, parent 

"My son has been in the ACE program for the past three years. ACE has had a positive influence on his academics and his social interactions with other students. If it weren’t for ACE, we would not have the funds to place him in an after-school activity."
