Chicago Engineers’ Foundation volunteers help the organization in many ways. Get involved to encourage and empower the next generation of Chicago engineers.
- K-12 Classroom Visits: Engineering professionals visit K-12 groups to talk about careers in the sector, serve as career fair mentors, or STEM fair judges.
- Incentive Award Reviews: Each Spring, volunteers serve as review volunteers, helping to evaluate applications to determine the next class of Incentive Award recipients.
- Career Development: Engineers and other professionals support award recipients by offering their time and expertise during networking and career activities.
- Leadership and Support Opportunities: Individuals serve on various working committees, assist at events, and hold positions on the CEF Board of Directors.
CEF volunteers come from a variety of professional backgrounds. They include engineering professionals, attorneys, retirees, former award recipients, Union League Club members, and others who generously give their time and talents to inspire the next generation of engineers.
