The NYC DOE Career and Technical Education Office of Postsecondary Readiness has officially endorsed ACE GNY participation to count toward the 54 hours of Work-Based Learning needed for your students to graduate with a CTE endorsed diploma!
We welcome students from your school to join ACE GNY as individuals, or as a full team consisting of 25-30 students from your school. If you are interested in a full school team, please email Lauren Fiore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with the mentorship program, ACE GNY will be offering professional development webinars once a month during the program year to all participating students. Any professional development webinars hosted by ACE GNY that your students participate in will count toward the hours, too. These webinars will focus on topics such as how to apply for scholarships, college essay writing, networking, Linkedin profile creation, advice from ACE GNY students who are in college studying a design and construction major, and more. With both the mentorship program and the supplemental activities, your students will be able to reach the 54 hour requirement.
We are in contact with the Office of Postsecondary Readiness to properly track your students’ hours and participation. To use our program for your students’ requirements, please email Lauren Fiore at email@example.com.
