Southwest Idaho SWE members are passionate about serving Idaho's Treasure Valley community with their skills and time.

Check out upcoming outreach opportunities on our calendar, and find out how to get involved.

Student Outreach

We share our passion for engineering by organizing, participating in, and sponsoring activities in Idaho's Treasure Valley that introduce youth, especially young women, to engineering.


Each year, we incorporate community service activities into our schedule to give something back to our community. Activities include building houses with Habitat for Humanity, volunteering at the Boise Zoo or Discovery Center, or volunteering at a local women and children's center.

In March 2008, SW-Idaho SWE VP Pat Pyke coordinated SWE members and others in the Treasure Valley to redecorate a Women and Children's Alliance shelter room. Boise State University featured the project on their website.

National SWE Outreach

The national SWE organization also reaches out to youth and students, on a national level, via K-12 and collegiate programs.
