Goals and Objectives

volunteers2ACCI addresses several issues that affect the future of Atlanta’s youth in terms of education and career readiness:

  • – ACCI confronts the issue of under-representation of women and minorities in the architectural, engineering and construction industry by exposing students to these careers prior to high school graduation
  • – ACCI addresses the declining percentage of inner-city youth that enroll in post-secondary education programs by partnering with universities to award ACCI students summer educational opportunities at no cost
  • – ACCI helps students connect creative talents to various careers, encouraging them to explore ways to cultivate and utilize their skills in a way that is passionate for them
  • – ACCI promotes entrepreneurship by connecting students to business owners with diverse personal and professional backgrounds who share first-hand knowledge and experience
