Bechtel employees are active volunteers in the company’s office and project communities, often working side-by-side with customers, contractors, local organizations, and government entities.
Many of our Stewardship, or corporate social responsibility, activities are done in collaboration with our Signature Program partners: DiscoverE, FIRST®, Engineers Without Borders, and JA Worldwide (Junior Achievement).
Globally, Bechtel employees participate in Stewardship activities that include mentoring students, specifically girls, to learn about the engineering profession by designing robots; building bridges and water supply systems in remote areas of the world, and even playing classroom games that explore engineering principles.
Stewardship at Bechtel is a way for our employees to give back by supporting education and improving the quality of life through engineering and construction. Each year we build a brighter future for more than 100.000 children, adolescents, and adults around the world.
Our volunteers are caring, dedicated ambassadors for the company and display passion and commitment in communities where we have a presence.
We complement the volunteerism of our people with contributions from Bechtel Group Foundation, which invests more than US$3 million annually in our Signature Program partners and in responding to disasters in office and project locations.
