ASCE LA YMF provides more than 100 membership events a year, including technical tours & presentations, community service events, STEM outreach events for K-12 schools, professional development workshops for engineering university students, and more! We also give out scholarships and host multiple major annual events with attendances up to 700 people! This year, these award-winning events include Los Angeles Engineers Week (E-Week), High School Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC), Student Night & Job Fair (SNJF), and the Western Region Younger Member Conference (WRYMC 2017).

Come learn and watch as the last of the StormTrap prefabricated modules gets installed at Bolivar Park, currently an active construction site. The Storm Water Capture Project will divert water from a nearby flood control channel, clean, and store water in an underground reservoir, which allows Bolivar Park to transition away from using potable water for irrigation! How's that for water conservation? Fun fact: Lakewood is the first city in California to be awarded full state funding for this type of project.
