Outreach Committee

Join the outreach committee.

SWE- Central Indiana promotes awareness of engineering to local students through our Outreach Programs. Our volunteers interact with young women to give them a better idea of what engineers are like while allowing students to experience first-hand what engineering is really about. Our goal is to help inspire, promote, and encourage young girls and women to pursue STEM related careers and fields.

Become a role model and inspire the next generation of engineers by volunteering for one of our Outreach programs! The time commitment ranges from a couple of hours (speaking on a panel or in a high school), to a single day event, to being a mentor in a more involved program.  We are always looking for volunteers interested in leading or assisting with planning and organizing events!

Our programs are 100% volunteer organized and run. Fill out our interest form below to get engaged and learn about upcoming volunteer opportunities!
