ACE Mentor Houston is a collaborative effort to bring the multifaceted construction industry, educational institutions and local community together to expose high school students to the world of architecture, construction, engineering and the building trades.
In this afterschool mentoring program, student teams work directly with professionals from the A-E-C industry to design hypothetical projects, tour local construction sites and visit architectural, engineering and construction offices. The program runs from October to April and meets at one of eight locations around Houston.
For students, it is a unique chance to discover and develop new skills, solidify goals and get on track towards exciting and rewarding careers. In addition, many students form positive relationships with industry professionals who can provide important references for obtaining college admissions, scholarships, internships and full‐time employment.
For professionals, ACE provides an opportunity to give back to the community while developing the next generation in the building industry and networking with other professionals who share the same passions.
ACE Mentor Houston cannot happen without support from the industry. Come participate in our fall fundraiser, where students and industry professionals partner together to build storage benches for local charities.
If you would like to get involved in ACE as a mentor, student, industry partner, or committee member, please contact us. If you have the passion, there is a role for you, no matter your time commitment availability or skill set.
