- About Us
"Whether you are a student or a young practicing professional, I cannot think of a more powerful professional development program than participating in EWB USA. Engaged participants strengthen their technical skills, sharpen their core values, and expand their world view as they execute projects in the developing world. Perhaps the greatest competence gained by participants and their universities and employers is ‘ingenuity’..the leadership characteristic marked by adaptability, creativity, resourcefulness, and self-confident service to the less fortunate. In the end, universities, government agencies, and private-sector firms share these benefits as high potential professionals flow upward and outward through the talent pipeline"
— Bud A.

We take an integrated approach to our partnership by providing financial, in-kind, and leadership support. An active network of more than 100 CH2M HILL employees volunteer with local student and professional chapters and participate in CH2M HILL's internal EWB USA community of practice, which provides a forum to share ideas and lessons learned on projects. These individuals contribute countless hours to help grow the EWB USA organization, mentor students, serve as public speakers and ambassadors, and bring sustainable engineering projects to life in countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, Mali, and Rwanda.
Since 2002, CH2M HILL's financial support has totaled more than US$732,000 to implement water, energy, and sanitation projects.
CH2M HILL also provides leadership and in-kind support to EWB USA. Senior Project Manager Mike Paddock and retired Senior Vice President Bud Ahearn serve on EWB USA’s Board of Directors. Our leadership also extends into the chapters, with numerous CH2M HILL employees serving as chapter founding members and presidents.
