Improving the world&mdash;New York&rsquo;s Yurintzy Estrada teams with EWB-USA
Reprinted from DMJM Harris Newsletter - August
Growing up, Yurintzy Estrada had always wanted a career where she  
could help develop communities worldwide through design and  
construction. In addition to her work as a structural engineer with  
DMJM Harris, Estrada has found another means to contribute through  
Engineers Without Borders (EWB-USA), a nonprofit organization that  
partners with developing international communities to improve the  
quality of life.
&ldquo;I first heard about EWB from a City College of New York (CCNY)  
alumnus during my junior year,&rdquo; says Estrada. &ldquo;It was the  
perfect organization for me&mdash;someplace where I could make a  
difference.&rdquo;
&ldquo;We showed the community members how to maintain, repair and  
manage the water system though workshops and small meetings,&rdquo;  
explains Estrada. &ldquo;The CCNY team is still involved with the  
Honduras community and will plan a post implementation trip to ensure  
that the system is being maintained correctly.&rdquo; (see next column  
for rest of story)

    Dear Members and Friends,
  Temperatures are still hitting 80 degrees out here in Colorado, but  
as I look ahead to a full slate of exciting and engaging Fall  
Workshops, summer seems like a dim memory. I hope to meet and talk  
with at least a few of you as I make my way around the country. For  
those of you unable to attend a workshop, here are a few of the  
exciting things we have happening at headquarters:
  Welcome to Gina Earles, the new EWB-USA Managing Director! Gina  
comes to us with a strong background in marketing, fundraising and  
management in both the non-profit and for-profit business worlds. She  
will be overseeing chapter management, communications, public  
relations, development activities and financial planning at EWB-USA.
  We are delighted that William Gates, Sr., the father of Microsoft  
founder Bill Gates, Jr., has accepted our invitation to speak at the  
Annual International Conference in Seattle in March 2008. Bill Sr. is  
a renowned philanthropist and speaker, co-chair of the Bill and  
Melinda Gates Foundation, and the co-author of Wealth and Our  
Commonwealth. Registration for the 2008 Conference will begin online  
on October 15 &ndash; don&rsquo;t delay!
  American Society of Civil Engineers has generously partnered with us  
to increase membership by including EWB-USA registration or renewals  
in their annual membership drive. We are looking forward to new areas  
of collaboration with ASCE and other professional associations.
  E&O Insurance has been contracted to provide Errors and Omissions  
Insurance to all our Professional Members through Lloyds of London.
  We want your Inspirational Stories! Please send us your  
heartwarming, inspiring or transformational story involving your work  
with EWB-USA, so we can share them with donors, supporters, and

$50 gift certificate to the EWB-USA store (new items coming soon!).
  I look forward to reporting back to you at the end of this month on  
the people and projects I know I will encounter at our Regional  
Workshops in Chicago, Glassboro, Portland, and Flagstaff. Thanks to  
all of you for your continued involvement in, and commitment to our  
growing organization. You make all those airport hours worth it!
  Warmly,

   Put your engineering skills to solve one of our nation&rsquo;s most  
pressing problems!
  There is an urgent need for excellent science and math education in  
our nation and yet our public schools, especially those in low-income  
communities, are failing to adequately prepare their students in  
science and math. Teach For America is seeking entrepreneurial,  
solutions-oriented engineering majors to help us address this alarming  
problem. To learn how you can join the network of emerging leaders to  
make a difference, and to read about our relationships with employers  
and graduate programs, visit www.teachforamerica.org.
Continued from the left column...
At the time, EWB-USA was still a fairly new organization and Estrada  
helped form the CCNY student chapter. As the CCNY student  
chapter&rsquo;s first project leader, Estrada managed thedesign of a  
water system for a Honduran community, which was completed January 2007.
The design involved three main technical components (a water  
collection system, a distribution system, and a chlorination system)  
and two sustainability and environmental components (wastewater  
management and garbage disposal methods for the community).
