On June 19, we commemorated the incredible achievements of our youth at ACE’s Graduation and Celebration of 2017! Students, their loved ones, and our community partners joined ACE at the Hilton Hotel for an evening of honoring young women and women who have overcome adversity and grown in knowledge, resilience, and character.

In addition to the RUTH YouthBuild Class of 2017 receiving their well-deserved High School Diplomas, this memorable evening recognized GRYD members who have successfully completed their youth development program and presented ACE’s Healthcare, Construction, and Business Trainees with their vocational certificates. While celebrating these successes, the graduation ceremony focused on highlighting the community and civic engagement work that these young men and women have been doing as an effort to build and strengthen their community.

On behalf of the entire ACE Family, we are honored to see our young men and women move forward through the next chapter of their lives.
