Accessing Choices in Education (ACE) Application

Accessing Choices in Education (ACE) Application - May 24, 2024

Chugachmiut’s ACE program serves Native youth living in the Chugach region, including the communities of Seward, Cordova, Valdez, Nanwalek, Port Graham, Tatitlek, and Chenega in grades K-12 who are enrolled in either public school, homeschool or private school. Our program works to provide funding support to these youth to be able to access educational opportunities that they may not normally be able to find. This includes various types of services such as school supplies, tutoring, SAT/ACT prep, vocational education, culture/language camps or classes, dual enrollment in universities, and fees for summer camps.
