On Thursday, October 15 the MoVaLEARNS Program received a $1,500 donation from AAC Utility Partners on behalf of the City of Moreno Valley.

Columbia, SC, October 23, 2020 --( AAC Utility Partners, a consulting firm based in Columbia, South Carolina, serves utilities across the United States and Canada. The firm sponsors a program – titled, “Young Navigators Award Program” – on behalf of its clients, aimed at supporting youth in pursuit of academic and career development. To extend its culture of partnership, AAC offered the program to the City of Moreno Valley. The City identified MoVaLEARNS and AAC agreed as the MoVaLEARNS and the AAC’s Young Navigators mission align.

The Young Navigators Award Program, named after AAC’s signature methodology – NavigateOne™ – reflects the company’s commitment to reach beyond the technical aspects of its work and to make a meaningful contribution to the success of youth in the communities it serves. The Program is also administered as a student essay competition in some locations, as clients are a collaborative partner in local implementation.

Rick Cutter, a Managing Partner of AAC, attended a brief ceremony held at City Hall and presented an appropriately socially distanced six foot check to the City of Moreno Valley to commemorate the occasion. Mayor Guiterrez commented, “We are grateful to receive these funds for such an important program promoting educational opportunity for youth in Moreno Valley. We applaud AAC for understanding the value of investing in today’s young adults with an eye toward the future.”
