Internal Service - High School Summer Camp


In partnership with the ACE Mentorship Program (AMP) the College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) held an Architecture Camp for junior and senior high school students.  The camp was an immersive program lasting a one full week. Twenty-eight campers came from multiple western states. Over the week the students worked to design and build outdoor works station and seating. The AMP mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering and construction through mentoring and to support their continued advancement in the industry. Since inception, AMP has made several impacts. 1. Increased the diversity in architecture, construction and engineering program enrollment. 2. Female AMP participants enter college engineering programs at double the national rate of their non-AMP counterparts. 3. More minorities are enrolled in the AMP than any other after-school programs as a whole. 4. More low-income students are enrolled in AMP than other after-school programs as a whole.
