WHO WE ARE

The ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia is the local affiliate of a national non-profit organization. An acronym for Architecture, Construction, and Engineering, ACE engages, excites, and enlightens high school students to consider or pursue careers in the integrated construction industry through mentoring, scholarships, and grants. Students are recruited from public and private high schools with special effort made to reach those traditionally underrepresented in our industry.

ACE relies on a network of volunteer mentors ranging from architects and engineers to construction managers, contractors, subcontractors and allied design professionals. The program emphasizes all aspects of design and construction industry careers – from professional college career paths to those in the building trades. By informing and exposing students to the myriad construction career options, ACE is helping to build a talented construction workforce for the future.

ACE GOES VIRTUAL WITH ACE360 ONLINE

A Global Pandemic has changed the way we all live, work, and learn. As a result, we needed to change the way we engage our students. Although we cannot meet in person, our mission to serve high school students interested in the design and construction industry has not wavered. We have worked hard to make the pivot to a 100% virtual experience and are proud to launch ACE360 Online – a comprehensive career exploration and professional development program.

We need your financial support to continue our mission of encouraging the next generation of design and construction industry professionals! Safety concerns around the pandemic prompted us to cancel our largest fundraiser, the Annual Scholarship Breakfast. Continuing to follow protocols around COVID-19, we have postponed our Golf Outing and it is likely that our increasingly well attended Giant Jenga event will need to be pushed back to 2022. Our funding is significantly reliant upon the sponsorships and donations received from these events; without them, it will be difficult to continue to fulfill our mission.

ACE360 Online provides impactful programming, mentor support, and scholarship opportunities for our students and enables them to become more confident, work toward personal and professional success, and pursue their career goals.
