About Us

In 2003, a group of local architects, engineers and general contractors founded ACE Mentor San Diego. We are excited to begin our fifteenth year in the program which has graduated and funded hundreds of high school students to pursue their degrees and enter the local workforce. The ACE Mentor program gives high school students an inside look at the wealth of career opportunities available to them in the building and design industries.

In our first year, volunteer mentors from many industry and university partners recruited and guided three teams of students. In our fifteenth year, mentors from more than 60 companies are working with eleven student teams. In addition, the NewSchool of Architecture and Design has made a significant commitment to ACE by offering full scholarships on a competitive basis for their five-year undergraduate Architecture and Construction Management programs.

For our 2017-2018 school year we had:

11 Schools
196 Students (260 started, 196 finished)
110 Mentors
18 Board Members
83 Sponsoring Organizations
$105,000 in Scholarships awarded
