his month we sat with Julie Pietrzak, PE, Senior Project Manager with Enovate. Julie is an active member of Engineer’s Without Borders (EWB-USA), “Community Engineering Corps” (CEC) program which works formally within the USA with under-served communities in project-based partnerships.
With so many volunteer opportunities available, why EWB-USA?
I’ve always loved to travel, but then I found out about EWB’s fledgling Community Engineering Corps program founded in 2014 which provides pro-bono engineering services to local neighborhoods and found it to be a great fit for me. I get to travel around the 5 boroughs and work through all phases of a construction project from community engagement through closeout.
