On July 7, 2022 Jennifer Park gave a lecture on the Social Practice of Architecture to students of ACE Mentor Chicago’s Design Build Summer Workshop program. The students are currently working with Little Village Environmental Justice Organization to build on a new urban farm in La Villita Park.

“ACE’s mission is to inform and excite high school students about career opportunities in architecture, construction and engineering; encourage students to pursue secondary and post-secondary education that will prepare them for careers in the integrated construction industry; and support the development of basic and technical skills through mentoring relationships. ACE Chicago places a special focus on recruiting students of color and female students; groups that are significantly under-represented in the construction and design industry, and in professional occupations overall.”
