The Power of Awesome

ACE Alumni


November 10, 2011

“Energizing.” “Innovative.” “Bold.” “Inspiring passion and solutions.” “Kick-starting a generation into action.” These are just a few of the rave reviews ACE has received from teachers, administrators and students over the last two years for our work activating high school students on climate change.

We asked our fans and supporters to tell us what makes ACE awesome. Check out this awesome video, featuring Van Jones, to see what they had to say: - email

Climate change is the biggest challenge of our lifetime, but survey after survey shows that many Americans aren’t very concerned. ACE’s innovative approach uses the power of awesome -awesome storytelling, awesome visuals, awesome presenters, awesome projects – to drive youth to act on climate change while building habits for a lifetime and building the will to change.

This week, we’re celebrating reaching 1,000,000 students nationwide – an awesome milestone -with our award-winning assembly on climate science and solutions. ACE is raising $100,000 by December 31 to get to the next million students – and we need your help today.

Here’s where your money goes:

-$50 – Educates 10 students on climate science and solutions.
-$200 – Underwrites one Action Team to reduce school energy use.
-$500 – Trains 30+ youth leaders to scale climate solutions into their communities, careers, civil society and beyond.
-$1,000 – Sponsors an ACE Educator for a week.

Thank you for turning inspiration into action and supporting ACE.
