Team Registration Fair

Date: October 16, 2019

Location: 1221 Avenue of the Americas, Sunken Plaza

Time: 4:00PM - 7:00PM

On October 16, 2019, the ACE Mentor Program of Greater NY hosted the annual Team Registration Fair. All of the NYC-based ACE GNY mentorship teams were present and recruiting students to their teams. Each team tabled with a board and a few mentors and high school students met each team and decided which team they wanted to join for the 2019-2020 Program Year.

The program kicked off in November 2019 with 53 mentor teams and 1300 enrolled students. Mentor teams will be meeting until May 2020, at which they will present the design project they have been working on for the program year.

Students that join ACE are encouraged to join again the following year – our application for the 2020-21 Program Year will be live in August 2020.
