Our Social Service Worker (SSW) program addresses critical labor shortages by providing hands-on education. Through partnerships with institutions like One Kenton Place, students gain practical experience under expert guidance. Phuc and Bableen, two of our students currently placed on site have said that day to day, students get support and guidance staying focused and combining the concepts learned in college with the lessons learned in placement to succeed. Their strong foundational knowledge helps show the supervisors how confident and ready they are to succeed. Recent meetings between Ace Acumen board members and Racheli Balofsky – Director of Recreation at One Kenton Place – highlight our commitment to community collaboration. This real- world training equips graduates with essential skills and confidence for impactful careers in social services.
