    am contacting you in regard to the ACE Mentor Program of Rochester, which mentors High School students interested in pursuing the fields of Architecture, Construction, and Engineering. We begin accepting applications in August, and the program itself begins just a few weeks after the start of classes in the fall. While we will reach out again at that time, we know the start of the new school year can be very hectic. If you know of any students that might be interested in or benefit from the program, please pass along our information.


    The program invites students into the offices of local A/E businesses, where they are given presentations by professionals in these fields. Students design and construct playhouses that are later sold at the Home and Garden Show, and go on to design a 1,500 square foot residence. The program emphasizes collaboration, and teaches valuable leadership and presentation skills. Last year, $15,000 in scholarships were awarded.


    Come August, students can apply online at www.acementor.org   for the 2019-20 program. In the meantime, students, parents, and educators can visit our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ACEMentorRoch , to see photos and updates from this past year, and our website, http://acementor.org/index.php/affiliates/new-york/rochester/about-us/ . Our most recent syllabus is also attached.


    If you or any students have additional questions, feel free to reach out to RochesterNY@acementor.org.


    Thank you!

    2020 Nursing High School Summer Program

    Over the years, thousands of local high school students have participated in our program for a variety of reasons: Because they want to help those less fortunate; because they’re interested in the field of healthcare; or to fulfill community service requirements at their school.

    Our summer 2020 program will run for 8 weeks beginning Monday, July 10, and end Saturday, September 2. Students will have a chance to learn about available placement opportunities at a mandatory group information session, scheduled in May or early June.
