Ace Mentor Ny
The ACE Mentor Program is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, and construction through mentoring and to support their continued advancement in the industry.
Students meet at one of the mentoring firms, thus seeing firsthand how an architectural, engineering or construction management firm operates. Teams meet twice a month after school during the school year for two hours per week. The team will decide together on a design project that is tailored to the students’ interest. Students will walk through the design, construction and logistical aspects of developing their pseudo project. Sessions include hands-on activities, use of design software, office tours and field trips to construction/project sites. At the end of the program, students will present their project to parents, teachers and their mentors.
