The Community Sub-Council has a broad mandate; to foster the growth of the alumni community and serve the general public as a whole. Our sub-council really is integral to ENGGYAC and touches all other sub-councils as we encourage the growth of the community.
- The Community Sub-Council was able to participate in the 14th annual United Way Engineering Day of Caring. We sent a team that, over two days, helped build a large outdoor garden space for the Canadian Mental Health Association – Housing Program (Northern Arms Residence).
- We are currently working on a collaboration with the Edmonton Public School District and their Career Pathways Program. We will be supporting alumni entering the classrooms of kids k through 12 and share their passion for their engineering careers. This will help to promote engineering and give the kids a better idea of what is possible for their futures.
The Community Sub-Council is excited to partner with St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Elementary School to build the school and the neighbourhood a new playground. This event will be co-hosted with the University of Alberta’s Engineering Connects and Play Quest.
About the Project:
The project will take place from July 6 to July 8 (9AM - 6PM) at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Elementary School
The ENGGYAC community sub-council is excited to announce an exciting opportunity to work with the Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) for their Career Pathways Program. This is an exciting opportunity to talk to kids in Grades k to 12 through virtual classroom visits and share your passion and knowledge as an Engineer, together with the classroom teacher.
You will prepare a 30-60 minute classroom interactions linked to one of the 5 pathways:
Arts, Design and Communication
Business and Information Technology,
Construction, Manufacturing and Transportation,
Health, Education and Human Services, and
Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences.
Through the Community Marketplace teachers can request sessions for their classrooms and a Community Marketplace Coordinator helps with connecting your area of expertise with the students’ learning material. Furthermore, they assist with the scheduling process.
ENGGYAC will provide you with presentation templates and additional assistance throughout the process.
The Community Sub-Council also organized the first collaborative virtual event with the Engineering Student Society (ESS): GOT A DEGREE… NOW WHAT?
This virtual event presented exciting new opportunities for networking, learning, and professional and personal growth unlike ever before.
We had almost 200 attendees, 136 total meetings among alumni and students and almost 80 meaningful connections were made during this virtual event.
