Founded in 1897, RES is a multi-disciplinary society uniting diverse disciplines to enhance professional development, foster excitement in math and science for the next generation of leaders, and improve communities where members live. The Society supports individual engineers, local affiliates of national engineering societies, schools of engineering, and professional firms. RES provides many opportunities to learn, to build relationships and to contribute to the community.

RES encourages and recognizes innovation, cooperation, professional growth and fellowship, in all levels of development, from student to seasoned engineers, scientists and allied professionals.

RES is recognized as the principal leader committed to increasing the visibility of the greater Rochester area engineering and technical community, serving as a unifying organization for local engineering businesses and associations. 

Our Monthly publication (see current issues below) of the Rochester Engineer disseminates what RES and our affiliates have planned for their members. Please  be sure to check it out and attend a meeting or program for networking!

Be a Mentor and Tutor

What’s it Like to be an RES Tutor?…

LaBella Tutor, Jamie Douthit, works with one of Mrs. Little’s Sixth Grader

Ms. Jamie Douthit is one of the newest RES Tutors. A native of Fairport, NY, she graduated from the University of Delaware with a BS in Environmental Science. She is an Environmental Analyst with LaBella Associates. Along the way, she’s been a Youth Counselor, and she has worked as an Environmental Outreach Coordinator with AmeriCorps VISTA. In Mrs. Little’s Sixth Grade, she works with a variety of students, some with special needs, others for whom English is a new language. Some of Jamies’ good work as an RES Tutor, is in support of students who have just arrived from countries currently in conflict. Jamie finds these students to be exceptionally motivated to learn as much as they can, toward “catching up” on their education.

Upon her arrival, on a Wednesday morning, Jamie receives a set of basic instructions from Mrs. Little, describing the work that the students are to be doing, that day. Jamie typically works individually, with several students, spending about 30 minutes with each of them, during her two-hour tutoring session. These students have been identified, by Mrs. Little, as needing some extra help with reading and math, to bring them up to Grade level.

We are still building our Tutoring Team, for the 2018-19 school year… We have been giving “Lunch & Learn” presentations in several Rochester area firms and professional groups, to inform and inspire prospective new tutors. We have “hit the ground, running”, and we need your support...Can we schedule a presentation with your firm, work group, church or family, sometime this Winter?

Even just two hours a week of your time can make a big difference in the life of a Dr. Walter Cooper Academy Scholar…
