ACE Recognized as Non-Profit
of the Year
The ACE Program of Connecticut provides mentoring programs throughout the school year, matching teams of professional mentors with public and private high school students in the architectural, construction and engineering fields. With locations in Hartford, Middletown, Enfield, New Britain, Bridgeport and New Haven, teams of mentors meet with students throughout the school year, providing hands-on training in computer-aided design, bridge-building, problem-solving, decision-making and presentation skills.
This year, ACE Connecticut was recognized by the Hartford Business Journal as Non-Profit Organization of the Year for tackling worker shortages and recruiting students from underrepresented populations to the AEC industry. Tecton has been actively involved in the program since its inception in Hartford in 2001, with many of our team members serving as mentors over the years. We also continue to recruit both interns and staff from this talented pool of interested students.
Congratulations to our participating staff and the many other firms and individuals involved in making this program possible!
