ASCE Texas Section mentoring programs facilitate the growth of engineers in all stages of their career. By sharing experiences, insights and ideas, both mentors and protégés develop a learning relationship that accelerates professional development.

Help a young civil engineer or educate a child about the marvels of engineering by making the meaningful and long-lasting impact of becoming a mentor. Your role as a mentor engineer squarely places you in the position of that teacher you once had who believed in you, who may have kindled an interest in math or science which then transformed into a roaring fire you have come to know as your passion for engineering!

This type of leadership role creates perpetual personal development opportunities for all ages, and is a way for you to give to the community. As Kathy J. Caldwell PE, former president of ASCE, advised:

"Consider giving through engagement, for what you give individually will become part of a greater return that will benefit all of us."

Attention Professional Engineers! Did you know you could earn PDH units for volunteering?

“As of September 2010, The Texas Board of Professional Engineers allows up to 3 PDH units for active participation in education outreach involving K-12 or higher education students. Review the Texas Engineering Practice Act and Rules Concerning the Practices of Engineering and Professional Engineering Licensure (§137.17) for additional information regarding Continuing Education Program requirements.

So what are you waiting for?
