ACE offered 5 programs this summer, four virtual and one, new, U.S.-based program in Colorado. The past summer’s programs were a result of collaborative efforts between the ACE staff, ACE Ambassador alumni, and community partners working together to bring ACE back to in-person programming and continue to provide meaningful in-person and virtual service experiences to Duke and Stanford student-athletes.
Virtual programs allow ACE the opportunity to continue to offer impactful summer service experiences for student-athletes in the midst of the on-going global COVID-19 pandemic as well as provide a flexible option for student-athletes to engage in service experiences. Over the course of five programs, ACE student-athletes contributed over 950 hours of service.
