Engineers Without Borders Yale University Student Chapter (EWB-Yale)

Our Mission:

Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit humanitarian organization established to partner with developing communities worldwide in order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students.

Our Activities:

Weekly Planning Meetings Direct Service Planning fundraisers, service activities, workshops and learning for our members in the community. We meet weekly in order to discuss our engineering and health project in Naitolia, Tanzania as well as our future projects. Habitat for Humanity/New Haven Volunteering Direct Service A small group of students will engage in volunteering with the local, established Habitat for Humanity organization in New Haven. We will build technical, hands on skills in engineering while also engaging in discussion and action together regarding housing and community. The event is outdoors and closely follows public health guidelines. Speaker Panel Advocacy, or Activism We will invite a panel of engineers and EWB alums to discuss the volunteer experience and how to approach this work intentionally. This could be in collaboration with other engineering organizations such as SHPE, SWE, etc.

Student Leaders:
