ACE Mentor Program gives high school students architecture, construction and engineering experience by creating solutions to real world problems. It's one of those programs you wish was around when you were a kid.
We made awards for the 2016 ACE volunteers and teams. Info about the ACE Mentor Program:
Founded during the 2006-2007 school year with significant support from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), 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 for two hours once a week for 16 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.
