Susan Klumner, The ACE Project

The mission of The ACE Project in Chicago is “to promote positive youth development in children ages 5 to 18 through building social and emotional skills, athletic ability and educational fortitude.” Susan Klumpner, a licensed social worker—and a PTR-certified 10 and Under Tennis instructor—co-founded the organization (with Leah Friedman) and now serves as its executive director. Klumpner played tennis for four years in college (she has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Grinnell College and a master’s in social service administration from the University of Chicago), and has coached youth players for the past seven years. While her full-time job is as a school social worker in Dolton/Riverdale, Ill., with The ACE Project, she manages the development plan, builds partnerships with community organizations, procures grants and donations, and facilitates tennis camps.
