Founded during the 2006-2007 school year with significant support from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), the ACE Mentor Program of Northeast Florida, helps high school students explore potential careers in architecture, construction and engineering.

Through the program, mentors from local industry professional firms meet with students for two hours once a week for 16 weeks. During these sessions, students work in teams to create practical solutions for “real-world” projects. It’s an effective way for students to experience the reality of what architects, contractors and engineers do during a typical working day.

Now starting our 11th year of the program, we have teams from Orange Park High School, Lee High School, Middleburg High School, Creekside High School and a Homeschool Group. We have two teams that will be competing nationally.
