In February, NSBE PRO-PDX met 30 black high school students at the 2023 NW Youth Careers Expo. Since then we’ve organized 1-on-1 lunches with ten of those students. We’re calling it “Lunch with an Engineer”.

It is our intention to inspire these students to enter the field of engineering. And we’ll accomplish this goal by connecting them with professionals in the field.

If you are an engineer, help us enhance the career trajectory of these young black students by hosting a virtual 1 on 1 lunch. Follow the link below to sign up!

Building Blocks 2 Success (BB2S) was founded in October 2013 but has been operating since 2008 on the principles of empowerment using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) as the incentive for learning.

Building Blocks 2 Success Mission is to get ethnically and gender diverse underrepresented youth from the Portland Metropolitan area excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through exposure and participation in STEM-related programs and activities.

We are actively engaging with BB2S to identify volunteering opportunities. You can learn more about their community impact here.
