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). Membership fees and allocations have consistently only covered about 10% of our costs, and the rest comes from the fundraising efforts of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our corporate sponsors. Consider sponsoring one of our major events today! Below are the Sponsorship Levels for one event.
Platinum Sponsor: $2500
Gold Sponsor: $1500
Silver Sponsor: $1000
Bronze Sponsor: $500
Or sponsor all four events with the City of Angels Sponsor ($7000) and receive maximum platinum level marketing benefits at all four events! Marketing benefits vary depending on sponsorship levels and discounted rates apply for sponsoring multiple events.

Through City of Pasadena’s approved Desiderio Reuse Plan, San Gabriel Valley Habitat was selected to build nine affordable bungalows on the former Desiderio Army Reserve Center site. The homes will be configured as nine single-family, craftsman-style homes consistent with the neighborhood’s architectural preferences. Each home will have three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a detached two-car garage. Desiderio Park is proposed as a neighborhood park that will connect to the nine 9 bungalow units. The park will include an open turf area, trees, security lighting, walkways, picnic tables, benches, play equipment, drinking fountains, and a paved parking area. For more information, check out SGV H4H’s website.
