The mission of the Reach out and Engage Next-gen Electrical Workers (RENEW) initiative is to inspire the next generation of IBEW workers to become active in their local union by focusing on issues important to younger workers, providing education about the IBEW and the labor movement fostering relationships between members and local union leadership.
The RENEW Initiative
Greater involvement by local union members of all ages is critical to the growth of the
IBEW. RENEW is an IBEW-wide initiative dedicated to creating opportunities for members
ages 35 years and younger and helping them develop the skills necessary to become active
in the local union and play a role in shaping its future.
The goals of this program are to educate the next generation of workers about the benefits
of the IBEW, to provide a space for younger members to discuss issues relevant to their
workplace and community, and to encourage their participation in programs that are
focused on strengthening the local union and the labor movement.
