Professionals Without Borders (PWOB) is group of Seattle University professionals driven to empower students to serve and lead sustainable service projects. It started in 2007 when a group of SU Facility employees were asked to assist on a service project in Nicaragua. Along with SU students, they re-graded the front courtyard of an elementary school that was repeatedly flooding. The concept born from this experience was simple: connect students with skilled trades people (plumbers, electricians, engineers, etc.) to complete small, but substantial, projects for people in need.
Since our founding, PWOB has taken dozens of students on service projects all over the globe, from Belize to Zambia to right here in the Seattle community.
