Interested in Mentoring with ACE DC? 

As an ACE DC Mentor, you will join hundreds of other professionals across the the country who are engaging, exciting and enlightening young people about the built industry! In the Washington DC region, teams meet at schools every other week for about 1.5 hours between the hours of 2-5pm (some sites might be earlier or later!) While we prefer mentors to attend every session, many mentors participate once a month. During these sessions, under the guidance of your Team leader, you will introduce students to the built industry, engage in hands on activities, and help the student prepare their own design project!

Just 5 Steps to get started...soon you could be impacting a young person's life!
