CHAC Mission

To serve as a representative body for college hires, co-ops, and interns throughout SRS.

  • Create awareness of common workplace issues surrounding acclimation and career development,
  • Identify problems and solutions related to college hires,
  • Serve as a peer support group to leverage relationships,
  • Foster a dialogue with direct supervisors and Senior management, and
  • Be a vehicle to initiate change throughout the organization.


Senior leadership has recognized that there is a shortage of employees being trained and developed to secure more management positions in the near term. Thus, managers have been challenged to review their current programs for hiring, training, and developing college graduates and employees in the lower grade levels.

With this in mind, senior management at Savannah River Site decided that the College Hire Advisory Council should be expanded to address the issues relevant to SRS and all of its college hires. The program was originally initiated in Bechtel's San Francisco Office, and has become a platform for SRS CHAC to grow on.


Open to all college hires (0-5 years) and those that have a particular interest in the college hire program. Currently there are over 300 active college hire participants located at SRS
