ACE Mentor offers opportunity


ACE Mentor Program of Greater Boston, an affiliate of ACE Mentor Program of America, introduces high school students to careers in architecture, engineering, and construction management. We accept students who attend high school in the Greater Boston area.

Frequently Asked Questions about ACE Mentor Program

Who? High school students from the Greater Boston area who might be interested in architecture, construction, or engineering. Any student grades 9-12 is welcome.

What? A free after-school program to introduce you to architecture, construction, or engineering through a hands-on design project.

When? One day per week, October-March, after school. You will be asked to choose an afternoon/evening that works for you to meet with your mentors at a local college, university, or ACE firm. Exact times and locations of each session will be announced in the summer.

Where? Northeastern University, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Roxbury Community College, Boston Society for Architects, SMMA, or a remote/online team. The program is the same at each location. Choose the one that is easiest for you to get to from school.

Why? To learn about design and construction, to get inspired, and to get opportunities such as internships, scholarships, and professional industry contacts.

How? Watch the video for a peek at the program in action. The in-person program will include pizza and hands-on group work. The online program will require that you have access to a phone or laptop that allows them to use Zoom. If you do not have such a device, we will work to get you access to one. We send kits with materials home to remote students.

What is the cost? The program is free of charge.

Who are the mentors? The ACE Mentors work in the fields of architecture, construction, and engineering, and they have worked on many exciting area projects. They volunteer because they want to help you learn about their work. All mentors undergo a background screening through ACE Mentor national.

What is the project? Last year, with the support of their mentors, ACE students designed and created a construction plan for a residential home, working within certain budget, environmental, and site requirements. The fall 2021 project will be announced soon.
