Mentoring Opportunity Builds Design Interest among High School Students

By Jim Barnes | Oct 30, 2013

Meilssa Wherley Mentoring ACE HS StudentsGerardo Gandy Mentoring ACE HS StudentsEmily Yen Mentoring ACE HS Students

Each year Jim Barnes and a few RISD grad students work with local high school students as mentors in the Rhode Island ACE Mentoring Program.

ACE is a unique partnership among industry professionals — architects, engineers, construction managers, college and university representatives, and other professionals from related corporations and professional organizations — who work together to attract young people to Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE).  We volunteer to become mentors to high school students in a weekly after-school program and to introduce them to various disciplines in our industry and encourage them to pursue education and then careers in these fields.

This year, Melissa Wherley, Gerardo Gandy and Emily Yen join Jim in meeting with students and working on a variety of projects related to architecture, construction and engineering.

If you would like to join this team, contact Jim: jbarnes@risd.edu

Sophie Chien (B.Arch 2020) Selected as a Maharam STEAM Fellow,
Sophie Chen will join the 2017 Maharam STEAM Fellows who are working in arenas not typically associated with art and design students and have the opportunity to effect real change in policy and practice in local and global organizations and communities. Her own work will take place at Providence City Hall in the Mayor’s Center for City Services. She says her work there will apply design thinking to the bureaucratic structure of municipal government, breaking down the “you gotta know a guy” culture and redefine internal silos in order to make city hall more equitable and efficient for constituents and stakeholders. Sophie plans to use her time working for city hall to build her experience in government, where she hopes to practice after graduating from RISD. Her goal in government is to restore trust in public institutions at a time when that trust seems to have disappeared. Using her belief in transparency and her ability to communicate data visually, she hopes to reaffirm the responsive and accessible capability of local government. Sophie will begin writing a blog this summer where you can follow her work at City Hall and the work of other Maharam Fellows. Find out more here.
