Founded in 2007, the ACE Mentor Program of Charlotte is an after-school program for high school young people interested in exploring career opportunities in architecture, construction and engineering.
Our program is currently serving over 175 students from the following area high schools: West Charlotte, Vance, Independence, East Mecklenburg, Hopewell, Myers Park, Providence, Ardrey Kell, Butler, South Mecklenburg, Garinger, Hawthorne Academy of Health Sciences and Phillip O. Berry. Through office tours, hands-on activities and field trips, the program introduces students to the industry’s various disciplines. Under the mentorship of over seventy local industry professionals, students work in teams on projects that simulate “real-life” situations.
In addition to the after-school program, ACE also supports our students throughout the summer months. Through our partnership with the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program (MYEP), ACE is able to provide a number of summer internships. This allows hands-on, real-life career experiences to our students preparing them for entry into the job market.
