Our mission is to improve academic achievement for youth through business, community and education partnerships.
ACEP is a non-profit literacy organization located in Fort Wayne, IN. Our mission is to improve academic achievement for youth through business, community, and education partnerships. We accomplish this goal through the two branches our main program: Project READS.
Project READS-Students is an after school tutoring program for children in first through third grade who are reading below grade level. Students are paired with a trained volunteer for one hour each week at various locations throughout the city.
Project READS-Parents classes give parents grade level-appropriate tools and techniques for working with their child(ren) who is entering kindergarten through second grade. Parents who attend both two hour sessions take home a variety of books and materials to help encourage and teach their child.
In addition, ACEP is a partner in many educational outreach programs including, the ITT Exelis Excellence in Education Awards and Rally to Read.
