"One of the greatest ways EA supports its surrounding community is by investing in the future. EA has an incredibly strong commitment to the young engineers of tomorrow and demonstrates this by leading a Day with an Engineer program which allows area high school students to shadow engineering professionals for a day, and by supporting the Easy as Pi program which brings together local 7th graders to a day of science and engineering demonstrations, and by funding the pursuit of engineering degrees through its multiple scholarships."

—Abbie Adams, P.E., Engineer

Community Involvement

EA is proud of its longstanding commitment to promoting ecological sustainability, helping local charities, and volunteering at community events. We encourage everyone to incorporate community involvement into their work life, and we are always ready to support educational programs that mentor students of all ages who are interested in exploring careers in engineering or the sciences. In addition, many EA employees are involved with local civic and community groups; not-for-profit organizations; teaching courses at local colleges, and coaching youth sports.

Here are just a few examples:

  • Environmental Sustainability Initiatives—In 2009, six “Green Teams” were established to address sustainability in all of our offices. This nationwide commitment to “reduce, reuse, recycle” goes far beyond our call for responsible and sustainable business practices. EA participates in community celebrations, neighborhood cleanups, and educational events from Maryland to Guam.

    For example, at Andersen Air Force Base and a public park in Tumon, Guam, EA staffed a booth for public education about recycling, handed out recycled bags, judged school projects, and planted trees. In Rhode Island, EA was commended for our efforts in joining our client in the annual Buckeye Brook Coalition Cleanup to help protect and preserve the brook, its tributary streams, and watershed.
  • Support for Local Charities—We’re a proud corporate sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Fund. Walkers and runners from EA participate in their annual 5K Race for the Cure in Hunt Valley, Maryland. During each of the past 2 years, over 100 EA employees and their families and friends took part, raising more than $25,000.
  • Commitment to Student Mentoring—We’re always eager to help young people understand what it takes to succeed in their future professions. For the past 8 years, EA has hosted groups of high school students for a day-long introduction to how engineering skills are used in our work. This “Day with an Engineer” is sponsored in conjunction with the Society of American Military Engineers.
  • National Aquarium in Baltimore—EA is proud to be a corporate sponsor.
