ACE is an after-school mentorship that connects Portland & SW Washington high school students to careers in architecture, construction and engineering. This local program serves over 100 students per year and relies on 100 volunteer mentors, all professionals in their fields, to coach students in a hands-on, team-oriented project. The program has demonstrated success in helping students graduate from high school, earn scholarships, continue their education and make informed career decisions.
