The ACE Mentor Program of America Strives to Attract High School Students to Pursue Careers in the Architecture, Construction and Engineering Industries
From our beginning in 1976, founder Don Lavallee focused on doing his best to make things better and inspired others to do the same. He cared deeply about our team, our work, and our community. Today, the tradition of giving back remains an important part of what makes Lavallee Brensinger Architects a rewarding place to work and create.
We are excited to spotlight Interior Designer, Ryan Tirrell, who is currently carrying on a Lavallee Brensinger tradition of serving as a mentor for the ACE Mentor Program of New Hampshire.
1. What is your current role/position?
I am a member of the New Hampshire Chapter Board of Directors and am the Oyster River Middle School Team Mentor.
2. What does this organization bring to the community?
ACE mentor program of America is a free non-profit afterschool program designed to attract high school students into pursuing a future in the Architecture, construction, and engineering fields.
3. Why is this organization important to you?
ACE provides a real-life opportunity to see what a career in architecture, construction, or engineering could look like. There are a myriad of roles and expertise people can develop over their career, and getting a head start on figuring out what you want to do before you get to college can make all the difference for some students. Diversifying the workforce of architecture, construction, and engineering is extremely important, that’s why I chose to work with ACE. One of their goals is to provide pre-collegiate equity in exposure to students across the United States and Canada.
