The ACE Mentor Program is a unique partnership among local high schools and construction industry professionals such as; Architects, Engineers, and Construction managers. The ACE Mentor Program gives design and construction professionals the opportunity to reach out to interested high school students and encourage them, through mentoring and scholarships to pursue careers in the construction industry.
In the ACE sessions, the students meet with building industry professionals who fulfill the role of mentors guiding the students through the facets of the design and construction process. The objective of the sessions is for the students to learn basic concepts about the planning and design of the built environment, to open their eyes to the world around them, and to start asking about things they see in buildings, on bridges, and streets or elsewhere in their environment.
Beginning with just two schools, +/- 40 students, and 32 mentors; the program has flourished into a highly sought after program within Central Indiana. In 2011 we invested $51,000 in our youth. In just six years, the ACE Mentor Program has awarded $221,000 in scholarships to deserving Indianapolis area students.
