American Water Resources Association
Engineers without Borders - Engineering Communities and Building Connections
Torin Johnson, Chapter President of Engineers Without Borders- Philadelphia
Engineers without Borders started out as one small project, staffed by a Colorado professor and his students, in a time when interdisciplinary work on a global scale was relatively unheard of. Now, in 2022, EWB has over 500 active projects, in 40 countries, with a wealth of over 14,000 volunteers. Over the past 20 years, EWB has revitalized and optimized global communities through innovative engineering, stable community partnerships and sustainable design and practice. EWB-Philly has done a wealth of both water sanitation and water distribution projects in Rwanda, El Salvador and Guatemala. In the United States, EWB-Philly has done community revitalization projects in Philadelphia, to improve the quality of life for our community neighbors. Through sustainable projects and consistent student chapter engagement, EWB-Philly stands as a pillar within the EWB-USA community.
Torin Johnson is a water resources engineer for the Philadelphia Water Department, and Chapter President of Engineers Without Borders - Philadelphia. Torin has dedicated his life to using his God-given talents in engineering and leadership to improve drinking water infrastructure, both in the United States and globally, as well as mentoring younger engineers to empower the next generation. Torin has been recognized for his hard work and dedication to sustainable design through such honors as Temple University's 30 Under 30 and he continues spreading the word of clean water and EWB through regular speakings at conferences and college campuses.
