    • Attend mandatory bi-monthly Peer Leader meetings to enhance personal civic learning with ACES Student Leaders
    • Communicate professionally with partner site and ACES staff, leaders and participants
    • Commit to completing civic actions through the year
    • Take the ACES Oath

    • Participate regularly in alliance-building events
    • Share experiences volunteering and being civically engaged within and outside of the NU|ACES group
    • Be open to learning and growing, and keep a positive attitude
    • Persevere in challenging situations  throughout the commitment
