AFRICAN DIASPORA CULTIVATING EDUCATION (ACE)
The Recruitment component of ACE focuses on uplifting the possibility of educational attainment in our youth. We provide academic support cultural enriching workshops, and prepare high school students for all avenues of higher education.
ACE strives to create a supportive environment that encourages academic success and cultural awareness. One of ACE’s main objectives is to help students achieve academic success. ACE centers its retention efforts on UC Davis students, looking to promote academic, cultural, and personal development. Specific programs that have been set up to accomplish this are the Peer Mentorship Program, the Annual Black Leadership Retreat, the Pride Retreat, Soul Speaks, Weekly Study Halls, and the end-of-the-year Barbeque usually held during Black Family Week.
