Board of Directors
Our board is comprised of local industry leaders who make a significant contribution to our chapter. We are grateful for their continuing support. View our board members.
The 2014-2015 ACE Mentor Program of Washington is well underway! Our 115 mentors and 160 students comprise seven teams, four in Seattle and three on the Eastside. 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, complete 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.
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 2014-2015 PROJECT: A waterfront museum and education center on Seattle’s Piers 62/63, with a budget of $30 million.
The 2014-2015 ACE year is almost finished, but we are already creating a list of those who want to know about the 2015-2016 application when it’s ready in August.
