Achievers Continuously Exploring (A.C.E.) Youth Project, Inc. was founded in 2012 by Damian Humphrey of Enfield, Connecticut, a socio-educational entrepreneur who believes all Black and Brown students can learn and excel in education if provided with the right tools, support systems, and educators to succeed. A native of Panama, Damian moved to Boston in the fall of 1981. As he adjusted to a new language, culture, and New England winters, he excelled quickly in academics. He learned firsthand the challenges that Latinx students face in educational predominantly White institutions (PWI). During a school trip to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) as an 8th grader, he met Dr. Ronald E. McNair, the first African-American astronaut to fly in the Space Shuttle Columbia who was a graduate of M.I.T. From that brief encounter, Damian Humphrey of Enfield, Connecticut, knew that he wanted his life to positively impact the education of others like him and be a role model for his community.
