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. Many students come for several years.

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 24- March 9, after school. You will be asked to choose an afternoon/evening that works for you to meet with your mentors.

Where?

The program will offer in-person or online options in the fall of 2022. Pick one to attend regularly, based on your schedule. The program is the same at each location. The program will meet approx. 4:00-5:30 PM, October through March, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday at these locations:

Monday – Northeastern University
Monday – PCA Cambridge
Tues – Wentworth Institute of Technology
Tues – Roxbury Community College
Wed – SMMA Cambridge
Wed – Boston Society for Architects

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

How?  For in-person, you will meet with your mentors at a university or an industry firm, and you will design together. 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. Students will receive a supply kit.

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? With the support of their mentors, ACE students will design and create a construction plan for a project, working within certain budget, environmental, and site specifications.
