Our Programs

Programs for Women

ACES provides programming to help women and their families overcome personal and systemic barriers. Programs are provided regarding the business world and how to improve their social and economic situations.

​These programs offer a space for women to share, support and learn from each other. ACES programs prove to be very successful in a short period of time. Many women have found employment and better job opportunities, stood up for their rights, and made changes within their communities.

Family Violence and Divorce

Family violence and divorce sessions address and help to prevent problems faced by women in a family situation. With problems stemming from harmful, retrogressive family and marriage environments, self-worth, and identity, there is support, providing participants with the knowledge to deconstruct and thus repudiate psychologically damaging messages.

Mentorship Youth and Women

The Mentorship Program was established with the objective to help women entrepreneurs grow their business and themselves. Mentors are matched for over a six-month period. Adding to the mentorship sector, a published magazine profiles women in business and entrepreneurs in a yearly prestigious edition to promote their credentials, products and/or services. The magazine readership reaches over 120,000 people in all industries and sectors.

On-Line Profiling

This program promotes and links women, their credentials, or business on-line by providing a profiling presentation, which includes a full-page, printable article designed to market their services or business.

Video Promotion

Video sessions teach women how to produce a video to promote themselves through social media.

Podcast Exposure

This program provides an opportunity for women to host interviews with a professional broadcaster for virtual exposure, reaching thousands of audiences, markets and areas.
