Ghafari Continues Support of ACE Chicago Mentor Program

Honoring a yearly tradition, Ghafari was a sponsor of the ACE Chicago Mentor Program’s annual luncheon on March 1. All proceeds from the event will help fund college scholarships for ACE students interested in studying architecture, engineering, and related fields.

ACE Chicago takes a hands-on approach to helping high school students learn about careers in the AEC industry. Using a variety of engaged learning approaches, the program involves students in activities that help them build skills they can carry over to school subjects, such as graphic design, art, math, and engineering. Ghafari Civil Designer Micki Chung is a past mentee of the program and spoke about her experiences during this year’s luncheon. Several of our team members have also been involved in the program as mentors.

We are proud to support this great organization and the AEC industry’s future leaders!
