YP Supporting Programs!

STEP Program

The Student Elevation & Transition Partnership (STEP) program was created for local YP Affinity Groups to help facilitate the transition of student members as they graduate and become higher grade IEEE members. The program is intended to introduce the opportunities and benefits of IEEE membership during the onset of a career.

STEP Program Objectives:

  • Recognize student members as they graduate and become part of the local YP community.
  • Introduce graduating student members to the local IEEE entity (YP) beyond the IEEE Student Branch.
  • Illustrate IEEE member benefits appropriate for young professional members.
  • Retain student members as they are elevated to higher grade IEEE members by communicating and demonstrating the value of IEEE membership for young professionals starting new careers.

Humanitarian Workshops Program (Suspended)

The IEEE Humanitarian Workshop is an event designed to raise awareness of how technology can make a positive impact on the world in which we live. By inviting speakers who are currently playing leading roles in applying technology to humanitarian causes, it is desired that the workshop will provide engineers with greater access to such projects, and even to share their own ideas for future projects. Since humanitarian projects are of great interest to the younger generations of IEEE members, it is expected that the Workshop will bolster IEEE’s efforts in the recruitment and retention of such members.
