For ACE students, the construction industry is your classroom.

The ACE Mentor Program is open to any high school student who has the curiosity and drive to learn about a career in design and construction — from contracting and engineering to architecture and landscaping.

Already, thousands of students have enjoyed the exciting projects, informative field trips and other engaging activities that make up the ACE experience.

Led by mentors. Driven by you.

As a participant, you’ll join a team of other students led by adult mentors who are practicing industry professionals. ACE isn’t about merely describing specific professions, it’s about immersing you in the profession by engaging you in actual building projects. These can range from new schools and mixed-use developments to amphitheatres and temporary housing for movie stars on location.

What to expect.

You’ll visit professional offices, job sites and other relevant locations. You’ll discuss the same issues, and perform the same tasks, as if you worked in the industry. ACE gives you a practical hands-on view of how abstract concepts get transformed into the buildings that make up our everyday reality.

Opportunities abound.

ACE is your chance to learn about different construction industry careers — and discover which one might be right for you. It's also a great way to connect with other students who share your passions. The friends you make during your ACE experience will likely be your friends for life.

UC Berkeley CED Summer Programs

UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design stands among the nation's top environmental design schools. It is one of the world's most distinguished laboratories for experimentation, research, and intellectual synergy. For over half a century, CED has paved the way for transformative design and research, work that has made a difference in our environment and society.

Today’s students have inherited unprecedented global challenges that could not have been foreseen when the college was founded in 1959. This legacy will require radically new ways to fashion the buildings, places and landscapes that harbor our diverse ways of life. The mission of the college is to produce creative and skilled professionals to help craft built environments — ecologically sustainable and resilient, prosperous and fair, healthy and beautiful — whose logic, form, and materials we as teachers cannot yet conjure.

We guide students toward a critical understanding of cities around the world, their architectures and landscapes, and their many layers of meaning. We train students in the art of designing well-loved places that both nurture our senses and challenge our imaginations. And we help students not only to acquire technical expertise, but also to develop transcendent ways of seeing and reconfiguring the built environment.

Submitting your application is the first step in joining CED in this mission. We look forward to learning more about you and your goals, and hope to see you in summer 2016!

Housing, and food will be provided for the 4 days, as well as transportation to and from the students' high schools into Berkeley. The criteria for applications will be based on the applicants' quality of essays, leadership potential, and enthusiasm. Applicants from all backgrounds and ethnicities are encouraged to apply; the application is also open to ALL grade levels in high school. Selected students can expect to network and collaborate with other high school students from all over California through interactive activities, workshops, and discussions. This program will not only educate and inspire our mentees, but also allow them the opportunity to forge new, lasting friendships in a fun and safe environment.

 

What is this year’s theme?

VISION 2016's theme is Acknowledge Connect & Empower (A.C.E). The Vietnamese community, as any other community, has learned to embrace their Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American identity and what it means to be an Asian American in a diverse environment. Through this theme, we would like our mentees to acknowledge themselves and their past, connect with others through their experiences, and empower themselves, each other, and their community. We will have workshops to learn about how we as individuals can come together to make a difference in our own lives and others. As a culmination of the conversations we will have in our workshops during VISION, students will have the opportunity to attend Cal VSA’s Culture Show. We hope that by the end of the program, mentees will have developed skills to make an impact in their community.

 

Ultimately, our goal for VISION is to empower our mentees to become culturally educated leaders who will initiate change within their communities with the intention of bettering the future.

Mission Bit

Who We Are

Mission Bit strives to eliminate the tech divide for youth living in urban poverty and rural areas across the San Francisco Bay Area by building computer programming and professional opportunity pathways for public school students. We provide everything the students need, they just need to show up and be eager to learn. No prior experience required.

We give students the opportunity to learn directly from successful engineers and entrepreneurs who enjoy sharing knowledge. We're focused on project based learning and aim to teach both core computer science concepts as well as the practical skills and technologies that are required to build web sites and applications today.

 

Mission Bit offers a two year course track that exposes high school students to multiple coding languages. We design our classrooms with an equity lens that emphasizes building community and rigorous learning objectives that focus on building projects. Fall and Spring courses run for 13 weeks, 4 hours a week. During the summer, we run intensive introductory and advanced courses that last four or six weeks, respectively. Each term students take a field trip to a tech company, receive career and college advising related to the technology field, and showcase their projects to a large community of supporters during our Demo Day event at the end of the semester.

There are no GPA requirements and any student that attends a San Francisco public school (including charter schools) is encouraged to apply. Given the lack of diversity in the tech industry and our focus on equity, we are reaching out to African American, Latino and female students that attend the following private schools: Archbishop Riordan, ICA, St. Ignatius, Mercy and Sacred Heart.

For Spring 2016 Courses:

Students that complete a semester with Mission Bit will be eligible for an opportunity to attend Hack Reactor's prep course for free and receive financing to cover the cost of tuition.
All 2016 spring semester students will take a tour of a SF Bay Area tech company.
All 2016 spring high school classes start on January 25th, 2016 and end on April 14th, 2016.
Consistent attendance is required and students are not allowed to miss more than 3 classes. The last day of enrollment is February 4th, 2016.
Mandatory: All students/families will need to attend accepted student orientation on Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 from 3pm to 5pm at 699 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA. Students must be accompanied at orientation by a parent or guardian.
Demo Day: Each semester ends with Demo Day, which is a mandatory component of class participation.

For additional questions, you can contact Mission Bit CEO Stevon Cook at stevon@missionbit.com.

The objective of the CHORI Summer Research Programs is to provide research training opportunities for both High School and Undergraduate students. The goal is to provide these opportunities for students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds to increase ethnic diversity in the health sciences. The Program provides the students with a research training experience to stimulate interest in pursuing a career in the basic, biological, clinical and/or behavorial sciences in a friendly and nurturing environment.
 
While the undergraduate program is focused just for the summer months (Mid-June to Mid-August), the funded high school program begins in March, 2016 (after school one day per week) and extends through Mid-August, 2016.  All student interns work one-on-one with a scientific mentor on meaningful, independent research projects. Interns are also exposed to a variety of engaging topics such as: medical ethics, conflict of interest, cultural competency, neurocognitive development, career planning, and more. Peer support and networking among interns within the program and with their mentors who share similar interests and passions enhance the experience and aid with career decision making.
 
Internship stipends range between $2,500 and $3,600.
Housing is NOT provided.
 
Qualifications:
US citizens with demonstrated interest in the biological and/or health sciences. 
Students who are under-represented in the sciences from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds are preferentially selected as we aim to increase the ethnic diversity in the health sciences.
