"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."

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.
