ACE Mentor Program of Colorado serves high school young people who want to explore careers in architecture, construction and engineering. Throughout the year, the ACE program, which meets two hours per week for 17 weeks, introduces participants to building industry professions by having them plan and design mock projects on real sites and work with professionals in the design and build industries. Students also have the opportunity to work with graduate and undergraduate students from CAP. Our students earn credit hours toward their degrees by participating in the program as mentors. CAP students Kendrick Wyman, Yasmeen Abuagina, Catharine McCord, Caroline Scott, and Nick Tubach were mentors this year.
