The ACE Mentor Program of Greater New York (ACE GNY) is now accepting students for the 2023-24 Program Year! Please read through this email carefully to see how your students can join our after-school mentorship program in-person or virtually this year!


ACE GNY is a free after-school mentorship program for high school students to learn about careers in architecture, engineering, and construction management. Students join teams led by professional architects, engineers, and construction managers to gain firsthand experience in the design and construction industry.  During sessions, students learn how to use design software, go on office tours and field trips, and participate in fun hands-on activities to learn more about the different career options. 

Note: You have can choose to join any of the ACE teams. We are Team 7!

ACE GNY is a full year program, operating from early November through May. During the first half of the year, students learn about each discipline and how they interact to develop projects. Then, the team develops a cohesive mock design project that they present in May.
