The ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia is the local affiliate of a national non-profit organization. An acronym for Architecture, Construction, and Engineering, ACE engages, excites, and enlightens high school students to consider or pursue careers in the integrated construction industry through mentoring, scholarships, and grants. ACE relies on a network of volunteer mentors ranging from architects and engineers to construction managers, contractors, and subcontractors. The program emphasizes all aspects of design and construction industry careers – from professional college career paths to those in the building trades. By informing and exposing students to the myriad construction career options, ACE is helping to build a talented construction workforce for the future.
ACE is your chance to SHARE YOUR STORY while providing an opportunity for students to learn about different construction industry related careers! There are various levels of involvement and flexible meeting schedules available! After school team meetings can occur on a Weekly or Bi-Weekly basis and will run from late October 2019 – May 2020.
