Civil Engineering Club
Civil Engineering Club is an after school club, held in partnership with a local high school. Led by ASCE members in cooperation with a faculty advisor at the high school, the club offers both the structure and flexibility to make it successful in the after school environment. Engineers and faculty will lead students through a sequence of pre-planned meetings and classroom activities, and will work with local companies, engineering organizations and/ or universities to create experiences that will introduce students to the role of civil engineering in the community and the career potential available for those who select engineering as their career pathway.
Six easy steps to launching a club for high school students
STEP 1: Getting started
Email Pre-College Outreach to request a copy of the Civil Engineering Club Guide, your resource for planning, registering and launching a club.
STEP 2: Learn from last year's club leaders
To be at the top of your game from the start, listen to the archived one-hour Webinar presented by club leaders from this past school year. Gather lessons learned and gain insight about planning and running a successful club.
STEP 3: Planning for success
Follow ASCE's guidelines for reaching out to local schools, securing commitments from a faculty advisor and volunteers, and developing a plan for the school year. Looking for schools in your area? Check out our list of Project Lead the Way schools and other top schools with high interest in STEM disciplines.
STEP 4: Ordering your FREE club resources
Once you have your volunteer and club launch plans in place, submit an application to register your club. Staff will confirm receipt and arrange for shipment of your free Civil Engineering Club resources. Contact Leslie Payne if you need additional support in making your registration official!
STEP 6: Launching your club!
With people and resources in place, you are now ready to recruit students and start having fun! ASCE will check in with you during the year to make sure things are running smoothly.
