ACE Mentoring of Maine is an affiliate of the national ACE Mentoring Program. We are local professional volunteers that mentor Maine high school students and inspire them to pursue careers in design and construction. Our mission is to engage, excite, and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering through mentoring and to support their continued advancement in our industry.
This year we are expanding the program to reach more students in the greater Portland area as well as up the mid-coast into the surrounding Brunswick area. We are in need of professionals that are interested in mentoring the next young Architects, Engineers, Contractors, or Skilled Tradesmen.
