Civic Time Off

Civic Engagement 

ACE recognizes it is our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help enrich our surrounding communities of residence and work. We encourage our employees to become involved in their communities, lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact the quality of life within these communities.

The following guidelines are for the ACE employees who serve as volunteers in community programs that are either of personal interest (those programs whose goals are considered strategically relevant to the College’s mission, but may not be college-funded) or are college-sponsored initiatives (those programs whose goals are considered of strategic importance to the college and for which the college has provided funding).

Volunteer Time

Each full-time employee of ACE can take up to 16 hours per calendar year to participate in their specific volunteer program.

  • Volunteer time should not conflict with peak work schedules and other work-related responsibilities, create need for overtime or cause conflicts with other employee’s schedules.
  • Volunteer time must be scheduled and approved prior to use.
  • You will be required to provide proof of attendance with your volunteer program upon request.


All full-time employees who are performing at or above expectations and who are not participating in a Performance Improvement Plan are eligible.
