    Contribute Your Skills To Those in Need

    In February 2014 ASCE launched the Community Engineering Corps (CECorps), an exciting alliance with Engineers Without Borders USA and the American Water Works Association (AWWA).  The CECorps harnesses the expertise of thousands of volunteers by providing pro bono engineering services that address the infrastructure needs of underserved communities in the United States. 

    The CECorps works collaboratively with communities to design solutions to problems that the community has identified. The CECorps only partners with communities that do not have the financial resources to access engineering resources in a traditional manner.  

    Volunteer Opportunities

    • Lend your technical expertise to communities – review community project applications or provide technical review of project plans
    • Form or join a project team through your ASCE Section, Branch or Institute Chapter – work with underserved communities on improvement projects.  
    • Mentor student groups – guide university-based student chapters in the technical aspects of their community projects.
    The Spirit Lake community has many needs, and few resources available to meet those needs. By partnering with the Community Engineering Corps, we now have the knowledge and resources to make our dreams a reality."
