2019 Mentor Information
ACE Mentor Program of Colorado serves high school young people who want to explore careers in architecture, construction and engineering. Throughout the year, the ACE program, which meets two hours per week for 17 weeks, introduces participants to building industry professions by having them plan and design mock projects on real sites and work with professionals in the design and build industries. Students also have the opportunity to work with graduate students from the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver). CU Denver students earn credit hours toward their degrees by participating in the program as mentors.
January-May 2019 Mentoring Semester.
The semester runs for 15 weeks at several locations (see map of location) and meets after class usually on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday (depending on the school). Student team presentations will be held April 25, 2019 at the CU Denver College of Architecture and Planning. Teams will be judged by a panel of experts and the winning presentation will be showcased at the annual fund raising gala, Blue Print to Success.
If you are a new mentor who is interested in starting with us please create a profile in the ACE national database. Just go to www.acementor.org and click on the mentor icon and follow the instructions. You cannot participate in the program unless you register. Registration includes information on a required background check. Mentors in Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public Schools may have additional background check requirements that are determined by the school district.
For Students and Parents
We are currently accepting applications from students for the 2019 semester. If you are a new or a returning student, please go to www.acementor.org and click on the student icon and follow the instructions. You cannot participate in the program unless you register and complete the paperwork. Once we confirm your registration, we will be in touch with you by email.

Please note that the program is a high school educational program for students interested in Architecture, Construction, Engineering and the related design professions. ACE also offers college scholarships but these are based on a competition and available funds. There is no guarantee that a student participant will receive a scholarship. There is no charge for students to participate in the program.
