We are excited to announce plans for virtual AND in-person programming for Summer 2022. This summer, we will offer four virtual service programs focused on supporting community-based organizations located in Peru, South Africa, Thailand, and Vietnam. We will also offer a new, in-person US-based program in Colorado.

Students are eligible to participate in one ACE program this summer (either virtual or in-person). Students who participate in one of the four virtual ACE in Place programs are eligible to apply for ACE programs in future summers. Students who participate in the ACE in Colorado in-person program will not be eligible to participate in another ACE summer experience. To learn more about 2022 eligibility and other questions, visit our FAQ page for more information. Start your ACE application today!
