Volunteer with STEPS

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with the STEPS programme. The STEPS programme accepts applications from prospective volunteers resident in Ireland year round. The applications are processed twice a year. 

STEPS will consider involving any engineer over 18 years old as a volunteer and encourages those from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, nationalities, gender and age.

Please note, volunteer applications are currently closed. Sign up to the newsletter below to receive a notification when applications reopen.

To volunteer for Engineers Week, the best way for you to get involved and have an impact is to organise and host an event. Check out the Engineers Week website for ideas for your event engineersweek.ie/engineers
