This year in particular, ACE Chicagos need your support!
For 20 years, ACE Mentor Chicago has been introducing students – particularly those underrepresented in the building industry – to careers in the field. We’ve awarded over $2 million in renewable four-year scholarships to its students. In addition, ACE has provided HUNDREDS of paid summer internships over the years, helping students have real-life experiences and encouraging them further in our field. Most importantly, the ACE program has given our students, primarily students of color and low to moderate income youth, an opportunity to build relationships with our 200 mentor volunteers and a chance to see a rewarding future for themselves.
This will be a challenging year! We’re innovating and thinking of impactful ways to reach students during the Covid-19 pandemic. With your help, we can continue creating viable career paths in the building industry for a diverse group of talented students.
