eBay Bids on ACE

IMG_2148We are pleased to announce that the eBay Foundation’s GIVE Team has selected ACE to receive a $6,500 grant for the ACE Solutions Lab!

Those of you who have generously donated your time and energy through our Career Clinics have seen our need for more computers, books, and a multitude of other learning resources.  Thanks to the eBay GIVE TEAM, community volunteers, and our donors, we are transforming our rudimentary library into a resource center that we will call the ACE Solutions Lab. The ACE Solutions Lab will be a place that offers all of the tools and guidance our participants need to experience rapid and efficient development on personal and professional levels.

Our participants deeply appreciate the time and energy that our amazing volunteers generously donate, helping with their job search, housing and healthcare applications, resume writing, and mock interviews. For those looking to volunteer in the future, keep your ear to the ground because this new project will mean more volunteer opportunities. Thank you volunteers and thank you eBay!  If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom or with career prep, please contact Deja at dwilliams@acenewyork.org.
