Welcome to our micro-merch shop. We are very excited to contribute profits from the sale of these items this season to the ACE Mentor Program of America. BARI thanks you for your interest and support of programs that are important to us and the support of youth in our profession and the building trades!

Founded in 1994, the ACE Mentor Program of America (ACE) is a free, award-winning, afterschool program designed to attract high school students into pursuing careers in the Architecture, Construction and Engineering industry, including skilled trades. ACE is a federation of more than 70 affiliates (chapters), operating in 37 states and largely based in metropolitan areas, which deliver the program:

  • The majority of ACE students (69%) are minority, and one-third female.
  • One-quarter of ACE seniors entering college are first generation students.
  • Over 10,000 students participate annually, drawn from approximately 1,100 high schools.
