The Architecture Club partners its students with industry professionals – architects, interior designers, engineers, construction managers, colleges and university representatives – to work together to attract young people to these professions. The industry professionals volunteer to become mentors to the Jefferson Architecture Club students in order to introduce them to the professions and encourage them to pursue studies and careers in these fields. Students are introduced to the various design professions and the role that each performs in planning, designing, and constructing a project. Students also gain first hand insight into the design industry by touring project offices and visiting active construction sites. Students work closely with their mentors to solve challenging “real world” projects.
