What We Do

The ACE Mentor program is an organization widely recognized by universities throughout the US as a stand-out extracurricular program that improves the chances of acceptance into programs offering degrees in the ACE fields.

ACE of Greater Boston, an affiliate since 2007, offers an after-school program, that runs from October to March, providing students in grades 9-12 with an introduction to the design, engineering and construction disciplines. Students work with mentors throughout the program to development a hypothetical, but realistic, building project. Field trips to construction sites, professional offices, and local colleges are also incorporated into the program. ACE Mentors are full-time architects, engineers, and project managers, as well as dedicated volunteers, excited to inspire the design and construction leaders of the future.

All ACE participants take away a valuable and exciting experience that develops ability for creative and logical thinking. The benefits include:

  • scholarship opportunities 
  • professional industry contacts and references 
  • high school and college internship opportunities
  • advance preparation for college 
  • development of technical skill sets in leading design and construction software programs
