With just under a month left to complete their designs, the architecture students of the ACE Mentor Program (ACE) are hard at work. With help from 9 PCA staff members, including group organizer Phil Tomlinson, the students are being introduced to the world of architecture, construction and engineering.

ACE is a national organization that teaches more than 9,000 students from 1,000 high schools annually, giving them a step up in the industry and inspiring them to pursue careers in design and construction. By engaging sponsors and mentors such as PCA, ACE gives students access to real-world networking opportunities that become the foundation of their careers.

Each year, ACE financially supports graduating students’ continued success through scholarships and grants. Students can use this scholarship to further their career in the industry at the college of their choice. We’re excited to be part of a great program that teaches the next generation to be the best and brightest of the industry.
