February 2017, Number: 1

Welcome to ACE Atlanta 2016-2017!

We hope you are ready for an exciting year’s program full of project-based learning opportunities and hands-on experiences to readily pursue careers in the A/C/E Industry. You are the next generation of innovators/entrepreneurs, problem solvers, and stewards for the local community, and with the help of your mentor team, we will help put you on the path to finding your greatness. Are you ready?

As often as we can, we will update you about highlights and activities within ACE all across Atlanta. Most of the programs are underway and building traction on the projects that they will be working on this year. We look forward to letting everyone know about your successes too.


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 the construction industry.


ACE Dekalb is underway strong with a guest engagement from Wakefield Beasley & Associates. Mr. Troy Tueller and Mr. Courtney Morrison visited the school and shared some insights on design careers. They later guided the students through the beginning creative processes with an exercise to develop a guiding theme for their project, which will be a culminating activity of the ACE Mentoring Program.

Thanks ACE Dekalb!
