ACE Mentoring of Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) introduces area high school juniors and seniors to the many rewarding career opportunities offered by the architectural, construction and engineering professions. Through programs that integrate hands-on activities, office tours, videos and field trips, mentors from area building industry firms expose students to a wide variety of skills and specialties.
This deepens students’ understanding of the career paths open to them, while giving them experience in applying the tools and techniques used by experts in the field.
ACE DFW also funds a college scholarship program for students who choose a post-high-school course of study leading to a career in the building industry. To date, this program has awarded scholarships worth a total of $72,000.
Since its founding, ACE DFW has more than doubled in size, with enrollment growing from 21 students from one high school in 2004 to 44 students from six schools in 2007.
During the 2008-2009 session, our project program focused on the Victory Park Development of Dallas, located near the American Airlines Center. At the end-of-year banquet, each team used PowerPoint presentations to demonstrate their designs. In addition, four seniors were each awarded a $4,000 scholarship, and two students were awarded a paid summer internship at one of the ACE sponsor companies. In addition, one of our DFW students also went on to win an additional scholarship from the ACE national office. Students also toured the new Dee and Charles Wyly Theater in the Dallas Center for the Performing arts and the Park Lane shopping district along North Central and Park Lane.
During the 2007-2008 session, each of four teams designed an urban park between downtown Dallas and Uptown over the Woodall Rogers Freeway. Through mentoring meetings in architectural, construction and engineering offices, the teams conceived unique ideas for each of five park elements and landscaping.
During the 2006-2007 session, each of four teams designed a building for a multi-use development planned for land adjacent to the new Dallas Cowboys stadium, which is currently under construction. Projects included an eight-story office building, a 10-screen movie theatre, a sports merchandise shop, and a bar and grille.
