Another group of Blackstone Valley Tech students have completed their ACE Mentorship Program! On Monday November 25th, juniors from the Blackstone Valley Technical High School gave individual presentations on their experience in the ACE Program and received their certificates of achievement.
"They showed me a different side to construction and changed my perspective on what actually happens behind the scenes. Hearing their stories that led them to where they are, led me to the conclusion that I want to be just like them in my career and do what I love" said Maribeth Buteau a senior in the Construction Technology program at BVT.
AGC MA launched "AGC MA/ACE Building Future Leaders Program for the Blackstone Valley" back in 2017 and is ready for our 3rd year! Over the past 8 weeks the students participated in hands on activities, learning about structural engineering, contract negotiation, project schedules and were treated to a tour of the new Attleboro High School project led by their mentors.
We would like to thank our very special group of volunteers for their time and support of the ACE students.
