WHO WE ARE
The Santa Barbara Ventura Professional Chapter is a sub-organization of EWB-USA. Our Chapter has four elected officers and hosts monthly Chapter meetings that are open to the public. We travelled to Tanzania in November 2022 to assess the water needs, and we are currently working on a water system design that will be implemented in summer 2023. We also have an ongoing water project in Ecuador and are mentoring and supporting the UCSB student chapter. We welcome all professionals (not just engineers!) to join us and get involved in these incredible projects.
EWB-USA supports community-driven development programs worldwide by collaborating with local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects, while creating transformative experiences and responsible leaders. Our 14,700 members work with communities to find appropriate solutions for water supply, sanitation, energy, agriculture, civil works, structures and information systems. From the initial blueprint to the boots-on-the-ground work, EWB-USA members have impacted more than 2.5 million lives.
