The ACE Mentor Program is open to any high school student who has the curiosity and drive to learn about a career in design and construction — from contracting and engineering to architecture and landscaping.
Already, more than 50,000 students have enjoyed the exciting projects, informative field trips and other engaging activities that make up the ACE experience.
Led by mentors. Driven by you.
As a participant, you’ll join a team of other students led by adult mentors who are practicing industry professionals. ACE isn’t about merely describing specific professions, it’s about immersing you in the profession by engaging you in actual building projects. These can range from new schools and mixed-use developments to amphitheatres and temporary housing for movie stars on location.
What to expect.
You’ll visit professional offices, job sites and other relevant locations. You’ll discuss the same issues, and perform the same tasks, as if you worked in the industry. ACE gives you a practical hands-on view of how abstract concepts get transformed into the buildings that make up our everyday reality.
ACE is your chance to learn about different construction industry careers — and discover which one might be right for you. It's also a great way to connect with other students who share your passions. The friends you make during your ACE experience will likely be your friends for life.
