Volunteers as Guides

Volunteers are usually engineers from state departments of transportation, though they could also be persons from other transportation related fields. Their typical role is to be a mentor to the students and to assist the teacher in presenting the TRAC™ material. Then, for as long as the module remains in the school, volunteers remain on call to provide technical assistance and to answer students’ college and career questions.

The volunteers serve as role models and may be the first engineers the students have ever met.
