Honoring a yearly tradition, Ghafari sponsored a table at the ACE Chicago Mentor Program’s annual luncheon. ACE Chicago takes a hands-on approach to helping high school students learn about careers in architecture, engineering, construction and related professions. 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. Several Ghafari team members are actively involved in the program as mentors.   

During the annual luncheon, Ghafari team members participated in a team-building activity with an ACE student (a tradition at this event). This year, our team was tasked with constructing a Ferris wheel out of gumdrops and raw pasta. 

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