A little bit about the STEPS Volunteer Engineer Programme:

The Engineers Ireland STEPS Programme runs a Volunteer Engineer initiative. STEPS Volunteer Engneers visit 3rd and 4th class primary school students all over the country taking part in the STEPS Young Engneers Award in November.

It is a fantastic opportunity to give back to your local community and to give your time to carry out meaningful work that will make a difference.

Other benefits inlcude:

  • Become a Role Model to inspire and encourage children to explore engineering
  • Develop your communication skills
  • Take on challenging but rewarding work
  • Be part of a nationwide community of volunteer engineers
  • The best way to gain CPD credits!

You can find out lots more information on volunteering with STEPS on the website: https://steps.ie/young-engineers-award.aspx

At the training session:

You will meet the STEPS Team, as well as fellow STEPS Volunteer Engineers. We will go through topics like volunteering as an engineer, the STEPS Young Engineers Award and what happens at a STEPS school visit. There will also be lots of ideas on delivering engineering activities to young children. And it will be fun!

Importantly, you will learn about the role of the STEPS Volunteer Engineer and our Child Protection Policy.

Accredited Volunteering Body

The STEPS Volunteer Engineer Programme has been awarded the Investing in Volunteers Standard - we are the only volunteer engineer body in Ireland to have achieved this.

We take child protection seriously. For that reason in order to volunteer with STEPS you must have attended one of the 2019 training sessions.

Refreshments will be provided from 6:00pm with an opportunity to network; the workshop is scheduled to start at 6.30pm.
