ACE, an acronym for Advancing Community Economics is the name of a recently approved  Inbound Global Grant program sponsored by the Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates.  Visiting Schaumburg Hoffman Estates Rotarians Jean Schlinkman, Brian Berg, and Bill Kelley gave a brief presentation on the project.  Our club is one of several area clubs that have helped to provide funding for the program which was developed to meet a  need for hard to fill skilled labor positions while helping underemployed area residents.  The program is being offered in partnership with Harper College.  Over the term of the project, it is expected that eighty scholarships for a variety of certificate programs will be offered.  One component of the program will include mentoring for scholarship recipients.  If you are interested in serving as a mentor or finding out more, please contact Brian Berg at Brian.BergJr@berg-eng.com.
