Volunteers make an impact on the lives and future of young students
Our program would not be possible without the valuable time donated by our generous and talented volunteers.

They are truly building the future of our industry and we thank them for their efforts.

Our Volunteers Hail from these Participating Firms
The Student Impact Project is taught by active engineers, designers and construction professionals. These volunteers donate 100% of their time to teach in classrooms and help students understand their industry. Without the support and encouragement of their employers, they wouldn’t be able to do this important work with so many students.
Below is a list of organizations who have had employee volunteers involved with EAA. We see these fi rms as true leaders in their communities and industry, and we thank them for their continued support of EAA, our participating teachers and students and, especially, their hard working employees who donate so much of their time to make our programs such a success.
