Volunteer Opportunities
Competency Based Assessors - Multiple Positions
We are still seeking assessors for the Competency Based Assessment (CBA) pilot. Assessors are those who determine if applicants have progressed to a professional level of competency in their field of work. This volunteer opportunity is ideal for someone who wants to give back to their profession, but is unable to commit to monthly in-person meetings due to work commitments, travel restrictions, childcare, etc.

Professional members in the following disciplines are encouraged to apply: civil, electrical, computer, aerospace, and project management/construction management. For more information on this opportunity, see the call for volunteers.
Engineers-in-Residence Program - Multiple Positions
Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba has partnered with Engineers of Tomorrow to pilot their Engineer-in-Residence (EIR) program here in Manitoba for the 2021-2022 school year. Engineers will be matched with a classroom in the province to support STEM curriculum with experiential learning, real-world examples, and hands-on engaging engineering activities on a monthly basis.
We are still encouraging professional engineers, interns, or engineering students who enjoy working and sharing their experiences with youth to apply. As there are many French immersion and Francophone schools in the province, volunteers who are fluent in French are also encouraged to apply. For more information about this opportunity, please see the call for volunteers or the news story.
