COAA PA & KCA presents Building the Future with the ACE Mentor Program! - An Evening with Charles Thornton!

The ACE Mentor Program of America helps mentor high school students and inspires them to pursue careers in the ACE disciplines – Architectural, Construction & Engineering.  ACE is now the construction industry’s fastest growing high school mentoring program, reaching over 9,000 students annually. In this day and age, with our workforce development issues, ACE is an excellent recruitment tool to attract future talent to the industry. 

Founded in 1994 by Charles Thornton, today ACE has 70 chapters, which include these Pennsylvania locations: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Lehigh Valley. Is State College ripe for launching an ACE Chapter? Instead of jumping right in, COAA PA and KCA want to introduce this region to the program and who better to provide this introduction of ACE than its founder?
