External Activities Committee

The External Activities Committee aims to give our members a chance to meet other young engineers from other Branches and organizations. We have done this by having joint ski trips, camping trips, luncheons, and more. Check out photos of some of our past events below!


If you belong to another YMF or organization and would like to collaborate with our YMF group, feel free to contact the chairs via email at ext-activities@ymf-oc.org. We hope you are all staying safe during these times and understand virtual invites will have to do until vaccines are successfully distributed.
