CCMA Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success
Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) is a partnership with Universities at Shady Grove (USG), Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), and Montgomery College (MC) to address multi-generational poverty by increasing baccalaureate degree attainment among underrepresented students, especially African American and Hispanic youth. The ACES partnership recently agreed to the addition of career readiness programming for all ACES students (an expansion of the current work with approximately 100 students to over 2,000 students at full capacity) beginning in high school and continuing through university graduation. This programming will provide students with workforce skills and professional experiences that will help to ensure that they can attain and succeed in high demand careers. Over the course of the 3-year project, the CCMA AmeriCorps VISTA member will assist in developing programming, connecting students at USG to industry opportunities, creating civic engagement opportunities, and ensuring long-term sustainability of the ACES career readiness expansion.
