P2K believes that it is important to help develop the next generation of professionals in construction.

In 2006, P2K created a mentorship program for civil engineering students from the Colombian School of Engineering in Colombia, where our founders, Guiomar Obregon and Carlos Sanchez, obtained their undergraduate degrees; later the program expanded to the National University of Colombia in Bogota. P2K has been providing these students with hands on training to improve their professional skills. So far, the program has benefited over 30 young Colombian engineers.

P2K also partnered with the Atlanta International School’s internship program in the summer 2019, which encourages kids to pursue careers in a STEAM-related fields, such as civil engineering. The internship at P2K will provide two high school students with the opportunity to shadow our professionals.

Ethan Carrier graduated from Atlanta International School and was the first student in the 2019 High School internship program. His goals for the internship were to become a better problem solver and learn more about infrastructure construction.

“I had a great time during my internship and it inspired me to pursue a career in civil engineering. Actually, I just got the news that I have been accepted into the Civil Engineering program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign”.

Chad Bryant graduated from High School and his goal for the P2K High School internship was to find out more about what the engineering industry is like.
