ACETinyTriangle.gifBoard of Directors

Our board is comprised of local industry leaders who make a significant contribution to our affiliate. We are grateful for their continuing support.

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 in our seventh year of the program, we have teams from five schools – A. Philip Randolph Academies of Technology, Orange Park High School, Englewood High School, Lee High School and Middleburg High School.


Participate in ACE!

If you’d like to experience ACE’s challenges, opportunities and rewards for yourself, just contact one of the ACE leaders listed in the upper right-hand corner of this page. We are looking for mentors for all schools.
