Do you want to get involved in the EWB Toronto Professional Chapter, but are not sure how to go about it?
We have many teams that are constantly looking for volunteers, including our Run to End Poverty team, and our Water for the World team. If you are interested in learning more about a variety of international development issues, you can get involved by attending our Shop Days or getting involved with our Member Learning team. If any of these teams fit the bill, be sure to get in contact with the Team Leaders.
If you would like to learn more about the organisation, or become involved with the Chapter more generally, please email us using the contact form.
GET INVOLVED IN ‘WATER FOR THE WORLD’ TEAM:
Water for the World (W4TW) is a program that educates youth in grades 5-9 about access to water, the factors behind a lack of access and the positive impact careers in STEM can have in dealing with systemic issues like lack of access to water (program website https://waterfortheworldto.wordpress.com/). We partner with the Toronto Public Libraries and National Engineering Month (NEM) to host 1.5 hour workshops on access to water with students in grades 5-9. We hold about 80 workshops during one week in March, reaching over 2000 students every year at 40 libraries. Each workshop is run by two volunteers which are trained by our team. We hold two training sessions for volunteers in February. Stay tuned for volunteer leadership signup in early 2018!
