Founded in 2006, ACE Atlanta helps high school students explore the many rewarding career options in the architectural, engineering and construction fields.

Through the program, mentors from local industry professional firms meet with students once a week for two hours. During these sessions, students plan and design innovative projects mirroring "real-world" conditions while mentors help them develop solutions using basic problem-solving techniques and state-of-the-art design tools. They also take field trips to area firms, major construction sites and notable buildings to experience and see firsthand what is required to design and erect these kinds of structures.

In addition to acquiring new knowledge and skills, students are eligible for ACE scholarships and gain contacts that can help with college admissions, job shadowing, internships and full-time employment. In parallel, ACE enhances the mentoring firm’s profile and the individual mentor's presentation and communication skills as well as preparing the future workforce.

Our Programs

To address all facets of the ACE industry, ACE Atlanta offers two program options: Traditional & Skilled Trades.

Traditional

Our traditional program model follows a curriculum developed by a committee of mentors that focuses on construction project design and management. This model highlights how buildings go from a conceptual idea to a physical structure and explains how and why each member of the project team is important. Weekly activities include concept sketching, space programming analysis, civil/structural analysis & design, mechanical/electrical/plumbing analysis & design, budget estimating, and construction scheduling. Students also get exposed to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and other emerging technologies used in the ACE industry. Students apply knowledge learned into a construction project of their own that they will present to industry professionals.

Skilled Trades

ACE Atlanta offers two locations that focus on the technical skills of construction. Students learn about various skilled trades and careers in the construction industry, such as concrete and carpentry, through hands-on activities and guest speakers.
