SWE Youth Protection

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all participants in SWE- sponsored youth-focused programs throughout the world. Youth protection requires continued vigilance, and we work every day to protect children through appropriate policies and procedures at every level of our organization.
SWE’s Youth Protection Policy and supporting documents (SWE Advocacy Code of Conduct and SWE’s Bullying Prevention Guide) explain requirements and expectations for interacting with youth at SWE-sponsored events and activities across multiple event types and situations.

Effective July 1, 2022 – All volunteers and staff interacting with youth, including SWE youth advocacy leadership, must complete the following steps:

  1. Review the three documents and act in accordance with this policy.
  2. Complete the required training course every three years.
  3. Acknowledge agreement with the code of conduct and standards for interacting with youth.

Once all steps are complete, please share proof of completion with our K-12 Outreach Chair via email, eci.k12.outreach@gmail.com.

Thank you for helping SWE protect our youth!
