ACE is a collaborative effort to bring the multifaceted construction industry, educational institutions and local community together to expose high school students to the world of architecture, construction, engineering and the building trades.
The ultimate goal is two-fold. One is to provide students with various pathways for life after high school and help students find what sparks their interest, but also to excite and motivate students pursue careers in the construction/design industry.
ACE Mentor Sacramento started as a small pilot program in 2007. This past year, we are proud to have welcomed over 150 students, from 14 high schools who have been mentored by over 80 mentors representing over 55 companies around our region.
ACE Mentor Program of Greater Sacramento’s mission is to enlighten and motivate students towards careers in architecture, construction, engineering, related trade services and suppliers. ACE of Greater Sacramento will be a premier network of industry leaders within the community by:
- Encouraging growth through student diversity.
- Represent all facets of the construction and design industry.
- Provide the opportunity for the leaders of the construction community to give back to the local community.
- Create a fun and engaging environment for students and industry leaders that we serve.
