Mentors make a difference at ACE


ACE Mentor Program offers a free after-school program for high school students to learn about careers in architecture, construction, or engineering. Watch the attached video to learn more about what to expect from ACE Mentor Program: learning by tackling a design project as part of a team.  This year’s project: a community arts center. Watch our video to learn more about the power of mentorship.

What to expect

The students come from high schools around Greater Boston. About two-thirds are people of color, and about half are girls.

The program will operate remotely in the fall of 2021, with the hope of adding some in-person events like construction site visits later in the school year.  Pick one time to attend weekly.
