Houston, Texas and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – (Nov. 24, 2023) — The AMPP EMERG Student Outreach Program, a leading program for students in primary and secondary schools, students in high schools, community colleges, and universities, as well as veterans and adults transitioning into industries served by the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), announces its inaugural Giving Tuesday Campaign on November 28th. This campaign is designed to raise funds to empower and support various programs, including scholarships, workforce development programs, and educational resources.

How it Works: Choose Your Impact

One distinctive feature of EMERG’s Giving Tuesday Campaign is the flexibility it offers to donors. Supporters can make an unrestricted gift, allowing EMERG to allocate funds where they are most needed, or they can choose to specify their donation towards a particular cause such as scholarships, diversity and inclusion grants, the travel assistance program, Corrosion Toolkits (cKits) and more.

“AMPP scholarships provided me networking exposure and opportunities to get involved and maintain a deep connection with AMPP through the start of my career,” said Nicholas D’Angelo, Jr. EIT, Chair, EMERG Program Committee, 2015, 2016, & 2017 Scholarship Recipient and 2018 Outstanding Student Award Recipient. “These early experiences paved the way for my AMPP certification and continued membership. I have gone from receiving scholarships to co-chairing our college student section to co-chairing and now chairing an entire AMPP program committee.”

Experiences like these aren’t possible without ongoing support. The EMERG Student Outreach Program strives to raise $5,000 with this Giving Tuesday initiative.
