Our Project Pipeline programming is designed to educate, inspire, and mentor students as they matriculate through the rigors of becoming a licensed architect. We inspire under-served and under-represented youth as early as age 10 through workshops, field trips, and our annual architectural summer camp. In high school we enhance their understanding of design, community responsibility, and construction through our Design-Build program.
I-NOMA also partners with other local organizations, such as the ACE Mentoring Program to ensure the students are prepared to enter college. During a student's college years, they are encouraged to join one of our NOMAS chapters (a college NOMA chapter) where they foster their leadership skills, focus on design and identity while giving back to their communities. Lastly, at the tail end of the pipeline, we support our emerging professionals as they prepare for the Architectural Registration Exams by providing study groups, access to study materials, and financial incentives for exam completion.
