Since the 2001-2002 academic year, the ACE Mentor Program of Washington has introduced Seattle-area high school students to the opportunities available in the architecture, construction, and engineering industries. Each ACE team completes a design project, giving them hands-on experience with the real life challenges industry professionals deal with every day. Volunteers from local firms in the building industry serve as mentors, sharing with the students their insights, perspectives, and experiences, and introducing them to many of the tools used by professionals in the industry. Nearly 200 students from 39 high schools completed the 2011-12 program, which consisted of eight teams - six in Seattle and two on the Eastside. These students were mentored by more than 100 professionals from our region’s architectural, construction, and engineering firms. Since 2001, more than 1,100 students have graduated from our program.
During ACE, teams visit major construction sites and tour their mentors' offices. Some students receive college scholarships, and many remain in contact with their mentors for assistance with career choices, college and internship applications, and full-time employment. Since inception, our program has awarded more than $270,000 in scholarships.
In the ACE Mentor Program of Washington’s ten years, its teams have worked on a long list of exciting design projects, including a new basketball arena for the Sonics, community centers in South Lake Union, a ski lodge on Steven's Pass, a new Seattle Aquarium, high-rise towers on Lake Washington, and many more.
