ACE is seeking two students who have an interest in design, construction, and community development to assist with this year’s summer program. The collegiate assistants will fully participate in the summer Workshop as both a team member and teaching assistant. It is expected that the selected candidate will help motivate and lead the students through the design-build process, while also assisting the instructors with organizational or administrative tasks. The Workshop runs from June 24 through August 14, meeting M-F from 8am – 12pm at Curie Metro High School on the Southwest side of Chicago. Curie is easily accessible via the CTA Orange line or city buses. The last week of the program will be conducted on-site and may require longer work days during construction. The Workshop is a lot of work- but lots of fun (see images of past projects above and below)!
To be eligible for this position, the candidate must have completed at least 1 year of the ACE program and be currently enrolled in a collegiate architecture, construction, or engineering program. There are no further restrictions. Architectural or structural design ability, construction experience, familiarity with 2D and 3D drafting programs, and prior leadership experience are highly desirable; however, it is not expected that one candidate possess an expertise in all areas.
Interested students should email resume and cover letter to ACE DESIGN BUILD DIRECTORS at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday May 08. The cover letter, in addition to highlighting past experience, should include current contact information and provide the year/number of the candidate’s former ACE team. In appreciation for your participation, ACE will provide a one-time college scholarship paid directly to you, for college related expenses such as books and supplies. Award amount will be $2,500.
