Building futures for students was the theme of the 2022 Chicago ACE Mentor Program event. HBK was pleased to support the evening which garnered $175,000 toward scholarships to help participants achieve their goals. Attendees enjoyed networking and meeting students.
Since the program was started in 2000, the Chicago ACE Mentor Program has awarded participants over $2 million dollars in renewable four-year college scholarships and has provided over 250 paid summer internships. Through these opportunities and through one-on-one mentoring, the students gain a broad understanding of career possibilities, real-life and real-work experience, confidence in working with others, and enthusiasm for the part they can play in architecture, construction, and engineering.
