This year I got talked into helping out with a program called ACE Mentor Program. Although I was hesitant to jump into this because I was unsure of the time commitment it would take I am really glad that I did sign up. It is a program designed to engage and enlighten high school students into the Architecture, Construction and Engineering industries. There are affiliate programs set up in 32 of the 50 states educating and helping students get into our industry. Not only is the educational for the students there is also opportunity for these students to be awarded scholarships for winning the competitions in their area. If you don’t have the time to volunteer at least spread the word to help this program grow.
