The ACE Mentor Program of America, Inc. (ACE) helps mentor high school students and inspires them to pursue careers in design and construction. It’s now the construction industry's fastest-growing high school mentoring program, reaching over 8,000 students annually. The Western PA chapter of the ACE program reaches about 50 students annually. 

Our mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, and construction through mentoring and to support their continued advancement in the industry. Who better to inspire a new generation of young people to start careers in an industry than the professionals currently shaping it?  ACE uses working professionals to reach job seekers in architecture, engineering, and construction careers.

ACE not only engages sponsors and volunteer mentors to expose students to real-world opportunities, it financially supports each student's continued success through scholarships and grants. Since inception, ACE has awarded over $14 million in scholarships to promising participants.

In this session, students will tour the Henry W. Oliver Building. Students will meet at the ESWP to talk about the project first and then walk down. The address of the site is:
