EIA has helped to improve the health and wellbeing of thousands of impoverished people living in Latin American communities. None of it would be possible without the passionate support and energy of our volunteers, donors, and partners.
You don’t have to be an engineer to contribute to our impact. EIA provides many ways for students, professionals, and others to help out, so join a team and get involved today!
- General Volunteer | Open to any and all, our general volunteer opportunities typically span a week to 10 days and include significant time living and working in a rural community performing a wide range of duties.
- Internships | EIA internships are available with a preferred minimum commitment of six months to a year and are open to any students currently studying engineering, health promotion, international studies or other related program.
- Service Learning | Earn college credit from our partner institutions while you work with EIA for a period of four weeks to six months.
- Partner Organizations | Local professional and collegiate chapters of Engineers Without Borders-USA and Bridges to Prosperity partner with EIA to travel to rural South America for varied amounts of time to share their expertise with locals while simultaneously adding to their personal knowledge base.

Engineers In Action is a project that will help improve thousands, if not millions, of lives in Bolivia and around the world. I feel honored and proud of being part of it.

Not ready to travel with EIA or host a fundraiser? Take a quick four-minute survey to see how your water usage measures against the families in EIA communities struggling with water poverty. Next, make a pledge to reduce your impact on the global water crisis and share your results and new commitment with your family and friends on social media with a challenge for them to do the same. With awareness, we can make an impact!
You’ll be amazed to see how much water you use, and even more amazed to realize how many people around the globe struggle for a fraction of the clean, safe water we often take for granted.
