Q: I am interested in volunteering how can I get involved?

A: If you are looking to get involved with one of our projects, you can apply for open positions at our quarterly General Meetings listed on our Calendar. If you join our mailing list you will be notified about upcoming General Meetings and chapter-wide events. Since not all projects are looking for volunteers, our project meetings are only open to project members.
If you want to help organize our fundraisers, contact events@ewb-sfp.org.

Q: I am not an engineer. Can I still join EWB-SFP?

A: Of course! We need all kinds of help from medical professionals to grant coordinators to administrative support.

Q: When are the meetings? Can I just drop in without being a member?

A: The EWB-SFP general meetings are typically quarterly, and we also organize chapter-wide networking and fundraising events throughout the year. You can check the EWB-SFP calendar for more details. Anybody can drop in and check it out. If you join the mailing list you will be reminded of our general meetings and other events.

Q: What are the requirements for traveling to a country with an EWB-SFP project team?

A: EWB-USA requires that you be a member (requires $100 membership fee for professionals) for 3 months before traveling. EWB-SFP requires that you be an active and contributing member of the team for 6 months.

Q: Is travel a requirement to be part of a project?

A: Absolutely not! We have a lot work to do here in San Francisco to support the design and commission of this project.
