ACE Project celebrates over a dozen children getting a head start in entrepreneurship

The ACE Project is celebrating more than a dozen students who graduated from the Academy of Child Entrepreneurship.

Fourteen students completed the most recent round of the seven-month program.

A graduation ceremony was held on Sunday at The Grand on Cane Run Road to recognize their accomplishments.

ACE, or the Academy of Child Entrepreneurship, helps kids in the community create their own businesses and get a head start in entrepreneurship.

Students participate in weekly classes, financial literacy research and mentorship as they develop their own business.

The ACE Project works to transform the lives of underserved children and families impacted by gun violence and trauma.
