No better way to wrap up our month-long celebration of our volunteers than by featuring some of the OTHER ways that engineers are helping us!
Aside from the hundreds of engineering mentors (the classroom volunteers – or EIRs as we like to call them!), we also have a Board of Directors, an Advisory Board, and focused Working Groups to thank!
We really do have the “best of the best” engineering talent powering the work that we do!
Meet our Board….
EoT Board of Directors
