Mentor Program

Mentoring young professionals is a sure-fire way to advance your own organization and promote the future of our industry as a whole.

ABX is proud to announce the launch of the Mentor Program, designed to allow students to interact with leading Mentors from the Northeast, introducing them to ideas, disciplines and people that are outside of their normal realm.

  • Who:  Professors and Mentors who would like to present discussions with final year undergrad and graduate level Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Construction curriculum and various other programs at schools in the Northeast.

  • When: Thursday, November 7

  • Where: ABX19, Boston Convention & Exhibition Center

  • What:  The Mentor Program is designed to allow students to interact with leading Mentors from the Northeast, introducing them to ideas, disciplines and people that are outside of their normal realm.  We will provide a bio of each Mentor to the professors and other leaders so that they may help their students choose the best discussion for their experience. Once those students have been chosen, we will also provide a short bio of each Mentee to the Mentors, so they are familiar with the group they will engage.

    Discussions will take place in round table format, with no more than 8 students assigned to each Mentor. There will be a one-hour session in the morning, and one in the afternoon. You may choose which session you would like to Mentor, or perhaps you would like to develop a two-part curriculum that stretches across both sessions.

    We will also host a 30-minute discussion on what students need to be successful in the AEC world, and invite you to participate in that as well. Perhaps you have a niche opportunity and would like to share how you got started, or you have advice on interviewing and portfolio presentation.

  • Benefits:  As a Mentor, you will receive one complimentary expo pass and a workshop of your choice. Lunch will also be available. 

  • Deadlines: The submissions will be accepted from June 14 to August 15. We will notify Mentors of their acceptance by the end of August. Once Mentors are confirmed, we will reach out for a short bio to present to the Mentees and begin finalizing the discussion groups. 

Once you have decided on a discussion topic you would like to mentor, please fill out the survey by clicking below. You may submit up to three ideas for separate discussions.
