Ceballos is a leader within the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineer and is a volunteer with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund.

He has also served as a mentor for first-generation college students, where he facilitated classroom discussions on various topics ranging from financing a college education to dealing with homesickness. One of the main reasons why Fernando dedicates his time to organizations such as SHPE is to help lower-income students understand that there are resources available to help them achieve their dreams. 

In addition to advising schools/teachers, non-profit organizations and individuals, Fernando dedicate any remaining time to sharing his fitness journey. With the help of accountability partners, proper nutrition, and a good fitness program, he lost 70 pounds. Far from his end goal, Fernando hopes to encourage others to take better care of themselves and live a happier life!
