Unassigned Projects

Community Engineering Corps has projects that are looking for the right team to help. Take a look at the list of unassigned projects and find the best fit for your team, or build your own project! To submit an application for an unassigned CECorps project, sign up for Volunteer Village! For more information or assistance, please reach out to cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.

CA - structural analysis of historic building

A new public park is located next to a two-story wood frame industrial building, which is planned to be converted to office space. The community is hoping to demonstrate the positive environmental impacts of renovating this older building versus demolition and new construction. They need a structural engineering analysis of the building to move forward with their plans. A full project team is needed to preserve this historic building.

For more information, please contact us at cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.

IL - renewable energy initiative

This organization, serving East St. Louis, is requesting assistance on a Renewable Energy Initiative with the ultimate goal of creating an energy independent Smart City. There are multiple components to the project including solar, wind, hydro, and energy conversion methods. While both student and professional teams are eligible, teams must have a high level of professional participation.

For more information, please reach out to us at cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.

KY - water system restoration

A newly formed water association is struggling with elevated levels of heavy metals in the soil and water supply. They are looking for engineering assistance to produce a preliminary engineering report and feasibility study to build a healthier water source for their residents. A full project team is needed to help get this system up to its full potential.

For more information, please contact us at cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.

MS - park land and watershed development

This is a multilateral initiative to implement neighborhood-scale green and gray infrastructure projects and training programs to address combined sewage flooding and improve water quality. The community wishes to convert several vacant and abandoned lots into park space and develop a walking trail while reducing runoff into the watershed.

For more information, please email us at cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.

Build Your Own Project

Want to create a project in your own community? Most of our projects come from collaborative efforts made by our members working with organizations in their area. Yours could be next!

How do you get started? If you are not already familiar with an appropriate partner in your community, some of the best places to check in with are local nonprofits, neighborhood associations, social service providers, or other community-based groups. They will often be able to identify needs either within their group or with their partners and constituents.

Once you identify and establish a solid community partnership, the community can submit a 541 Community Application (found on our Resources Page) to kick off the project!

For more information, reach out to cecinfo@ewb-usa.org.
