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.  Next year’s project: a transit station/hub. Watch our video to learn more about the power of mentorship.

What to expect

The students come from high schools around Greater Boston. About 75% are people of color, and about half are girls.

The program will operate with one remote (Zoom) session per week, and five in-person locations in the fall of 2023.  You will pick one time to attend weekly. If you cannot come every week, please let your assigned lead mentor mentor when you will be absent.

Choose between these locations:

Team 1 – Boston in the Fenway neighborhood – Monday 3:30-5:30
Team 2 – Cambridge in Inman Square – Monday 4:30-6:30
Team 3 – Boston in the Fenway neighborhood – Tuesday – 3:30-5:30
Team 4 – Virtual (Zoom) – Tuesday 4:30-6 PM
Team 5 – Boston near South Station – Wednesday 3:30-5:30
Team 6 – Cambridge near Central Square – Wednesday 3:45-5:15 (all participants  must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19)
