Want to get involved?
Here are a few options for getting started!
Even though we are “Engineers Without Borders,” the Minnesota Professional Chapter welcomes members of all backgrounds–from marketing and event planning, to health and safety, to graphic design. Active projects are always looking for a new perspective on how to aid a community, and each project needs support from the chapter. If you’re not specifically interested in helping out on an active project, we can always use help with planning fundraisers and socials, producing videos, putting together slide shows and posters, and monitoring budgets.
Become a Member
As a member of the Minnesota Professional Chapter of EWB-USA, you can join the ranks of 14,700 passionate individuals who volunteer their time to more than 286 dedicated chapters across the United States working in 39 countries around the world. Our membership represents a breadth of engineering disciplines and industries. Our work, though anchored in engineering, requires a range of skill-sets, from health and medicine to graphic design…we welcome all individuals who would like to support our cause! To become a dues-paying member of our chapter, you can visit the “Become a Member” page on the EWB-USA website .
Be a Mentor
EWB-USA student chapters, including our local University of Minnesota student chapter, are in need of professional engineers to oversee the technical aspects of their community development programs, share design and industry experience, and to provide overall project guidance. As professional chapter members, we have the unique opportunity to mentor the next generation of engineers, and to make a lasting difference in the lives of others. The University of Minnesota Chapter has on-going programs in several different countries–each with its own mentoring needs. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity and you’d like more information, you can send us a note via the form on the “contact us” tab or check out our Projects page.
