"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart."
- Elizabeth Andrew
SAE International applauds our over 25,000 volunteers and member leaders who have contributed to the success of their industry, communities, and their professional association and network.
SAE volunteers have an invaluable impact on the success of SAE. But did you know that it can have many benefits for you personally too?
Consider these reasons to be a part of the SAE professional network:
- Boost your career options
Volunteering is the perfect way to explore new fields, expand your work portfolio in your field, or gain a real insight into your chosen path. A recent survey* showed:
- 73% of employers would recruit a candidate with volunteering experience over one without
- 94% of employers believe that volunteering can add to skills
- 94% of employees who volunteered to learn new skills had benefited either by getting their first job, improving their salary, or being promoted
- Learn or develop new skills
- Be part of your professional & local community
- Motivation and sense of achievement
- Give back to future generations of engineers
Volunteering is a perfect vehicle to discover something you are really good at or develop a professional and/or technical skill that can benefit your career.

Volunteering is ultimately about helping others and having an impact on people's well-being. What better way is there to connect with your community and give a little back? Volunteering also offers an incredible networking opportunity. You never know who you will meet or what new information you will learn.
Volunteering is about giving your time, energy, and skills freely. Unlike many things in life, there is a choice involved in volunteering. Package your desire and enthusiasm to help make a difference in your industry, or just your little corner of the world.
Volunteering allows you to share your experiences and knowledge with the next generation of engineers and professionals. SAE is proud to be an avid supporter of K-12 math and science education and the promotion of engineering education.
