Northeast FL

About Us

Founded during the 2006-2007 school year, 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 once a week for 18-20 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 18th year of the program, with teams from Orange Park High School, Middleburg High School, Bartram Trail High School, Creekside High School, Nease High School, Pedro Menendez High School, Tocoi Creek High School, Atlantic Coast High School, Bishop Kenny High School, Paxon High School, Riverside High School and a Home School Team. The program will begin in November with several icebreaker sessions and run through April.
