ACE MV’s White Paper on Island Youth

Next Steps for Martha’s Vineyard: Recommendations to Expand Opportunities for Youth and Young Adults

ACE MV is pleased to provide you with the Final Report “Next Steps for Martha’s Vineyard: Recommendations to Expand Opportunities for Youth and Young Adults. This research report stems from our UMass Chan School of Medicine Rural Scholars project, sponsored by the Dukes County Health Council. Our focus was to identify service gaps, barriers, and needs of the Vineyard’s disconnected youth and young adult population, and we worked with dozens of community stakeholders to develop these comprehensive and formal recommendations.

We hope these recommendations will be embraced by you, your organization, and our community partners as we all strive to improve the lives of our Island’s youth. Please share this with your team and refer to it when making decisions about planning, equity, inclusivity, education, economics, housing, workforce, and community health. Your feedback is welcome.

ACE MV Wins Workforce Training Grants

Reprinted from The Vineyard Gazette Jan 5 2022:

ACE MV (Adult and Continuing Education of Martha’s Vineyard) has been awarded four new grants to support education and training for Island workers and youths, according to an announcement from the organization this week.

Grants from the MV Bank Charitable Foundation and the MV Community Foundation will fund ACE MV’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program. The bank’s charitable oundation also provided funding for an additional Medical Interpreter Course, to train bilingual Vineyard residents in ethical and effective interpreter services for hospital, clinic and Covid site language needs. These grants will significantly lower the cost of tuition for each student who enrolls, according to the announcement.

A grant from the Couch Family Foundation will support ACE MV’s Youth Workforce & Career Pathways programming for the Island’s high school youth and young adults. And with a grant from Santander Bank Foundation, ACE MV will continue working closely with the high school, the charter school and young adults up to age 26 to provide free workshops and learning opportunities, especially in financial literacy and career readiness.
