ACE Mentor Program Partners with USGBC

07/19/2006


Officials of the ACE Mentor Program of America (ACE) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that they have formed a strategic partnership, aligning the highly acclaimed high school mentoring program focusing on the A/E/C industry with the largest national consensus working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. The partnership provides the opportunity for USGBC members to participate in its program as potential mentors.

“This is a terrific opportunity for ACE whose program relies on mentors, professionals from leading design and construction firms, who are passionate about what they do and want to share their experiences with high school students,” said Pamela Mullender, executive director of the program.“This partnership opens the door for additional mentors to get involved in their communities and a way to introduce the next generation of architects, contractors and engineers to the enormous opportunity to effect change in the way buildings are designed, built and maintained.”

“Students are the future of the green building movement,” said Chris Smith, chief officer of operations for USGBC.“USGBC’s members--who are some of the industry’s most experienced and dedicated visionaries--are very excited about this opportunity to teach and inspire the next generation of green builders.”
