Event Date

2016 Event dates TBA

Target Group

Chicana(o) high school students


MEChA de UW has organized the A.C.E. conference for the past eighteen years in order to address the lack of enrollment among Raza in institutions of higher education and issues affecting our community. A.C.E. is geared toward the recruitment and outreach of prospective Chicana/o students applying to the University of Washington. The goal of this conference is not only to promote higher education, but also to provide empowerment and leadership skills catered toward Chicana/o issues and other people of color. We primarily outreach to students from underprivileged backgrounds and/or first generation college applicants. We hope that all the participants leave the University of Washington with a sense of empowerment of their people, culture, and identity. The conference dates are set for May 15th and 16th. See the applications below for a tentative itinerary.
