Join a Chapter

EWB-USA members volunteer their time and expertise through EWB-USA chapters. Members can join one of more than 286 dedicated chapters across the United States working in 45 countries around the world.

Once you sign up a volunteer you can connect with an EWB-USA chapter to attend meetings, network with like-minded individuals and directly engage in EWB-USA programs and projects. It is through our chapter structure that all EWB-USA project work happens. Chapters partner directly with communities on community-driven engineering projects to meet basic human needs.

Become a Mentor

EWB-USA professional members have the unique opportunity to mentor the next generation of engineers to make a lasting difference in the lives of others. EWB-USA student chapters are in need of mentors to oversee the technical aspects of their community development programs and to provide overall guidance.

As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to travel to the project site and see firsthand the difference your work — and the work of the students — makes in the lives of others. EWB-USA student chapters are in need of mentors with expertise in the areas of engineering, construction and international development to ensure the high quality of our programs.
