ACE Mentoring Program at J.P. Taravella High School

POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA - October 2013 - Current Builders began their 6th consecutive year with the ACE Mentor Program of Broward Country, adding a new high school to the program. The ACE Mentor Program helps high school students discover the wide range of career options available to them in architecture, construction and engineering. The ACE Mentor Program is a 501(c)3 non-for-profit organization, whose mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students in Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Martin Counties to pursue careers in the integrated construction industry through scholarships and grants.

In 2008, Current Builders led efforts as a founding board member, to form the ACE Mentor Program of South Florida affiliate. Since, Current Builders has mentored students from Plantation High School and currently mentors at Coral Springs High School for their second year, providing scholarships and internships to benefiting students. This year, Current Builders is pleased to announce the addition of J.P. Taravella High School in Coral Springs, Fla., to their list of schools.

During the program year, professionals from local building industry firms - such as Current Builders - alongside high school and university educators, meet bi-weekly after school with teams of high school juniors and seniors to share experiences and expertise. Students visit construction sites, specialty training facilities and offices of industry professionals. They work together in teams on projects reflecting real-world challenges.

Charles P. Reid, Current Builders CEO, has been the President of the ACE Mentor Program of Broward County affiliate (formally the ACE Mentor Program of South Florida) for the past 5 years and continues to head as its leader. Staci Thirlwell, Director of Business Development, and Kar Ho, VDC/BIM Assistant Manager, are both active mentors in the program with Thirlwell heading Current Builders' mentorship at Taravella and Ho in Coral Springs.
