AMERICAS COUNCIL FOR THE CREATIVE ECONOMY

Americas Council for the Creative Economy (ACCE) is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to develop 21st century occupational skills for youth (16 – 24)  from historically disadvantaged communities. Typically, these youth, many of whom have inherent skills in the creative arts, are not working or studying and lack connections to society’s major social structures.

About us

ACCE operates in a strategic partnership with “Fundacion CA”, non-profit corporation, which was founded by Carlos Arguello and has trained and developed over two thousand disadvantaged youth in Caribbean, Central & South America and Mexico in partnership with The World Bank, USAID and OAS.
