Since 2000, the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia has given local high school students an opportunity to learn about careers in architecture, construction, and engineering. The nation’s fastest-growing after-school mentoring program uses a team model with industry professionals serving as mentors. They work with groups of students on collaborative design projects, teach real-world life and professional skills, take field trips to construction sites, tour offices, and more. The program makes a powerful impact on students’ exposure to careers in the design and construction industry, and helps them achieve career objectives with scholarships and support.
For academic year 2018-2019, ACE Greater Philadelphia has 17 Philadelphia teams with 280 students and over 120 mentors, four suburban teams with 60 students and 20 mentors, and one new team in Camden, NJ with over 12 students and 6 mentors. Over 65 companies are represented by professional volunteer mentors of the design and construction industry. New teams proposed for the 2019-2020 school year include Delaware County PA and teams in Cumberland, Co. NJ!
All active participating seniors who intend to pursue A/C/E related fields for their post-secondary education may apply for ACE scholarships. Through the support of our amazing sponsors, the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia has awarded more than $646,000 in scholarships and grants!
