The ACE Mentor Program is a not-for-profit organization that helps prepare high school students for careers in design and construction through mentoring by industry professionals.

The Student Experience
I truly love the ACE Mentor Program because it helped me reveal my true potential. My spectacular mentors guided me through challenging parts of the project and always gave me positive feedback. The mentors were extremely generous and after their usual long day of work, they would cheerfully welcome me to the afterschool program with a wide smile on their faces. ACE has taught me a vast amount of skills needed in order to become a powerful female leader in the engineering field. This program has offered me an abundance of strategies and techniques to help me thrive not only in my future career, but in life itself.- Scarlet Astudillo (Team 51), Senior, Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction (New York, NY)
