For your financial support, the total amount needed varies depending on your place of service and the length of your stay. You will need to figure in the cost of a round-trip airline ticket, passport, visa fees, and living expenses on the field. Check with an ACEM Educational Assistance Representative or the foreign ministry with which you will be serving for more details on the total amount needed for support. Consider some of these fund-raising ideas to help offset some of the costs.
Prior to beginning your Educational Assistance ministry, you should complete the A.C.E. monitors' training in a local school. Gaining practical experience with the ABCs program and a Learning Center environment is extremely helpful.
A thorough understanding of the A.C.E. School of Tomorrow program is important as you may be asked to be involved with every facet of the program, such as orientation, parent conferences, and record-keeping.
