Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers can provide engineering presentations as well as one-on-one mentoring to students considering a career in engineering. Our volunteers include CEF Alumni, Union League Club members, members of the ILITE and other interested engineers who believe in our mission.

Our volunteers work for businesses and organizations such as Navistar, Illinois Tool Works, TranSystems Corporation, Cambridge Systematics, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, federal and state agencies, and intellectual property law firms.  Their engineering disciplines include Mechanical, Biomedical, Transportation, Chemical and Electrical Engineering, among others.

As a volunteer, you can help the Foundation excite and encourage tomorrow’s engineers.
