Take an active interest in educating and cultivating the next generation of engineers and scientists by volunteering with SAE’s STEM programs.
Vince Bandurski started his career path by attending the General Motors Institute (now known as Kettering University) and went on to later work as an executive director at General Motors until his retirement in 2003.
Wanting to share his 40+ years of experience, he is an exemplary volunteer for SAE and the SAE Foundation.
"I volunteer in both the AWIM and CDS programs locally, and have for the past several years, and am most energized by the excitement, creativity, motivation and feelings of accomplishment the students demonstrate, while learning STEM principles. These students are our future. It continues to be a very worthwhile and satisfying experience."
Recruiting is another way that Vince strives to help SAE in their mission. As an active retiree himself, he is always talking to other retirees about participating with the programs. “Once you see it, it kindles a fire and you want to participate.”
