Founded in 2002 the ACE Mentor Program of St. Louis helps the city’s high school young people learn more about potential careers in architecture, engineering and construction.

Working in teams under the guidance of volunteer professionals from local firms, students take field trips to construction sites, visit the offices of industry professionals and tour local colleges as well as trade and tech schools.

They also work on projects that relate what industry professionals do to “real-world” situations, giving program participants an opportunity to experience first hand the excitement and rewards available to those who transform their ideas from abstract concepts into the buildings, bridges and other constructions that make up the world in which we live.

In addition, the affiliate provides financial assistance in the form of scholarships to students pursuing a course of study leading to a career in the building industry.
