The 2017-2018 school year has wrapped up!

The ACE Mentor Program of Washington had a fantastic year! Congratulations to the 190 students from a record 57 local high schools who finished the program and the 170 mentors who guided them along the way. The final presentations were impressive, and our scholarship event was success!

Recruitment for the fall and online registration officially begin in August. If you’d like to have your name added to our informational e-mail list, to be informed when we are organizing teams for the 2018-2019 school year, please email us at SeattleWA(at)acementor.org.

What is ACE?

Since 2001, the ACE Mentor Program of Washington has helped more than 2,000 students learn all about the architecture, engineering, and construction professions. Are you fascinated by the art of architecture? Are you interested in how buildings withstand earthquakes? Are you intrigued by sustainable “green” building design? Are you wondering how a building can start out as an idea and become reality? Join the ACE program! Our program is free to students, thanks to donations from local firms, mentors, parents, and other supporters. To date, we have also given $575,000 in scholarships to students who pursued A/E/C fields at the university level.

During the ACE Mentor Program, teams visit major construction sites, complete projects, and meet bi-monthly at mentor firm offices. Qualifying high school seniors are awarded scholarships and many students remain in touch with industry professionals for continued mentoring with career choices, college and internship applications and future employment opportunities.

Our Projects

Each year the teams are assigned a project. Students and their mentors work diligently preparing for the Final Presentation Night where each team showcases their year-long effort. Over the years, team projects have included a new basketball arena for the Sonics, community centers in South Lake Union, a ski lodge on Steven’s Pass, a new Seattle Aquarium, high-rise towers on Lake Washington and many more.

Scholarship Program

The ACE Mentor Program of Washington has awarded $659,000 to countless seniors since 2001. Most of our scholarship recipients have gone on to study architecture, engineering, or construction at the university level, and many have returned to the Puget Sound to work professionally and some even participate as mentors with ACE!
