Mission

The Engineers Without Borders-High Plains Professional Chapteris URS' international stewardship initiative in partnership with Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA), a non-profit humanitarian organization established to service and ease poverty, stabilize communities, and promote prosperity worldwide. The initiative, part of URS' Social Responsibility program, is an employee-based volunteer program devoted to developing projects that provide people around the world with access to basic necessities such as food, clean water, power, sanitation, and shelter. Our chapter is led by URS employees who serve on the chapter's executive committee. Additional employee volunteers support the initiative by working on projects (both in the field and remotely), in administrative positions on chapter committees (such as fundraising, communications, education outreach, and volunteer coordination), and on the chapter's Application Review Committee, which supports EWB-USA by reviewing the technical viability of projects submitted to the national organization.
