This year, more than 180 students from 40 high schools participated in the program, which consisted of nine teams – six in Seattle and three on the Eastside. These students were mentored by over 150 industry professionals from our region’s architectural, construction and engineering firms. Since 2001 more than 1,600 students have graduated from our program, at no cost to the student.

During the ACE Mentor Program, teams visit major construction sites, completed projects and meet bi-monthly at mentor firm offices. Qualifying high school seniors are awarded scholarships and many students remain in touch with industry professionals for continued mentoring with career choices, college and internship applications and future employment opportunities. Since the inception of ACE Mentor of Washington, our chapter has awarded more than $360,000 in scholarships.

Our Projects

Each year the teams are assigned the same project. Students and their mentors work diligently preparing for the Final Presentation Night where each team showcases their year-long effort. Over the years, team projects include designing 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.

The 2013-2014 PROJECT: A school remodel meeting the standards of the Living Building Challenge; which is a green building certification program that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability for buildings and landscapes possible today.
