The ACE Trailblazers Program invites Siena College students to engage middle-school aged children in an after-school program, providing inner-city youth with the skills they need to become leaders in the community. The college students meet with the youth twice a week and spend another day of the week planning the training they will provide the middle school students with. Trailblazers is a unique program that is founded on William Sedlacek’s 8 Non-Cognitive Indicators of Success:
The Trailblazers Program aims to allow the students, both Siena and middle school students to experience each one of these indicators during their time in the program and create the leaders of tomorrow. We are currently serving grades 6-8 in North Albany Academy.
