For more than 80 years, Carollo Engineers has been a part of the communities we serve. We are more than just consultants, we are residents, and through the Carollo Cares program, we are proud to donate our time, energy, and resources to making our communities better places to live and work. Our outreach programs range from workplace giving for charitable organizations to educational outreach to volunteer activities to funding worthy programs that support our neighborhoods and cities.
Dedicated to Enriching STEAM Education
At Carollo, we are passionate about explaining to young people that science and technology is all around us every day--even in something as simple as turning on the faucet. Therefore, we are advocates for investing in science, technology, engineering, arts, and technology (STEAM) education for our younger generation. Demonstrating the importance of STEAM to young children is one of the most effective ways to build secure socio-economic environments for everyone, regardless of race, gender, or personal beliefs.
We believe it is everyone's job--not just teachers'--to spark that sustained level excitement for science and engineering into the minds of young people.
A Day in the Life of an Engineer
As part of our educational outreach program, the Carollo Cares team produced a five-minute video of a young Carollo engineer taking us through her day. We have provided this video to school districts and other educational entities to show to their students as part of their science and technology curriculum.
Carollo employees have a vested interest in improving the communities where we work, live, and play. Recently, the City of Los Angeles hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the Broadway Neighborhood Greenway Project (the Project), an initiative aiming to green and enhance the public space in South LA through Low Impact Development (LID). Designed, planned, and implemented by Carollo, the project was essential to help the City find a way to engage its citizens, in an effort to help reduce the amount of rain water flowing from the roofs of their homes, and into the street and storm drain system. As part of the Project, homeowners within the target area were able to participate and beautify the neighborhood by making their homes more environmentally friendly, and in turn, doing their part to improve local water quality.
