ACE Starts Capacity Building Work

August 31, 2015

ACE was recently awarded a grant from Impact Alamance for work in organizational assessment and capacity building. The staff, board of directors and consultants from UNCG’s SERVE Center have been busy evaluating programs, policies and procedures with the goal of improving and enhancing our core infrastructure. We are working together to develop a plan where we can further our mission in a more impactful and meaningful way.


Alamance Citizens for Education’s mission is to strengthen community support for quality education in Alamance County.




In early 2005, a group of Alamance County citizens came together as a task force to raise awareness and promote the then “current needs” of our public school system. Some of the issues that caused concern back then still remain today. They include absenteeism, the drop out rate, lack of teacher resources and over crowded schools. ACE was formed with a diverse Board of Directors and Board of Trustees, many of which are still involved today.

It is our goal at ACE to be a catalyst for the community, working together to promote academic achievement in all our classrooms.
