Career & Technical Education (CTE) » Mentorship


    Staten Island Tech helps our students achieve their personal and professional goals by guiding and mentoring students when they face obstacles during their four years in high school and when they need assistance figuring out how to proceed on their path to post-secondary education and their careers. We offer several mentoring programs that students can participate in to seek guidance in their endeavors. 
     The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking and exciting program that transforms local middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through the year-long program, students in grades 6-12 generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, and launch their very own companies.

     ACE is a program in which volunteer mentors from many of the industry’s top firms assist student teams as they take on challenging construction design assignments similar to the ones professionals work on every day.  In addition, students get hands-on experience using advanced technologies to plan, schedule and estimate their projects. Many also visit construction sites, professional firms, and schools and colleges to learn what makes projects and careers alike succeed.  To cap off the experience, students present their design solutions during special events attended by mentors, families, and teachers. ACE affiliates may also award college scholarships, and all are ready to help students find a fulfilling career in the building industry.
