African Community Economic Development of New England
Developing our community through education.
ACEDONE provides programs to help East African youth graduate high school, enter college and develop a stronger East African community in Boston.
While most of our beneficiaries are Somalis, we also serve Ethiopians, Eritreans and Sudanese who reside in greater Boston. We help them succeed in their new life in Boston.
Youth in Charge is a group of East African youth who are committed to addressing the issues we see in our community. We met bi-weekly in the Madaal Center and welcome new members.
Earlier this month ACEDONE’s Diaspora Youth Leadership Initiative was recognized as a “promising practice” by Bridging Refugee Youth and Children’s Services, www.brycs.org .
