The ACES Board of Directors has announced the formation of the ACES Youth Corps to play a strategic role in the development of the organization to achieve its purpose: “To foster stewardship and motivate regional and local action towards positively impacting the planet’s climate and our environment’s health.”
The organization has had the good fortune of having 8 interns working on a variety of projects this year.  ACES President, Art Currier notes: “It has been a joy to have worked with our inspired interns - they have made a significant contribution to the effective development and execution of each project. Their stewardship and understanding of the fact that the well-being of future generations is at the heart of the need for broad based stewardship – locally, nationally and globally – allows them to play a key role in the launch of this leadership program.”
 The students who have played a key role in the formation of the Youth Corps include recent Newburyport High School graduates and interns Alyssa Keith, who will attend Babson College, Cami Loignon headed to Concordia University, and Eleni Protopapas going to UMass –Lowell. Other leaders are 2019 NHS graduate, Samson Leblanc, now attending UMass - Lowell and rising seniors Sam Cooper and Summer Noonan who will leverage their experience with multiple projects. Emmanuel College students, Andres Liang and Deanna Ruggerio, Roger Williams College graduate, Philip Parry of Merrimac and Waring School sophomore Camille Gimbrere have been working on fundraising, website, social media, database, and administrative systems plans and projects to contribute to the evolution of the corps. 
 ACES BOD Members Susan Mailhoit and Patrick McCormick are serving as the sponsors of this important program. Their goal is to ensure that our project teams are composed of the optimum numbers of youth corps members and advisors/mentors so each project’s results achieve objectives.
 Individuals interested in connecting with the corps, either as a student member or an advisor/mentor, can send an email message to with ACES Youth Corps in the subject line.
