Program Director, Emily Durham, worked alongside local South African videographers Chris and Kate, as well as the ACE in South Africa student-athletes, to create a short film that embodies the ACE 2017 experience. Videographers Chris and Kate captured some of the student-athletes' most formative moments in South Africa, filming at two of the student-athletes' service project locations: a winter sports camp the ACE Team held at AJC Primary School in Nomzamo Township and at a greenhouse construction site. The student-athletes also discussed some of their most valuable and lasting takeaways from the ACE experience in interviews, sharing lessons in immersive service, collaboration, and humility.
