Founded in Portland in 2006, ACE’s Oregon affiliate gives high school students an exciting and informative way to learn about career possibilities in architecture, construction and engineering. During 12 after-school meetings, students work in collaborative teams under the mentorship of experienced professionals from local building industry firms.
The teams tour construction sites, visit professional offices and work on a building design project. Activities like these help students better understand what people in the building industry do and what kinds of career options the industry offers.
In addition, ACE Portland awards scholarships to students pursuing higher education in architecture, construction, engineering or related fields in the industry.
