Important New IEEE Guidelines for Working with Children

As part of IEEE’s commitment to provide programs that are both enriching and safe for all participants, IEEE has developed new guidelines and procedures for volunteers and employees who participate in IEEE-sponsored activities that include children.

The IEEE Guidelines for Working with Children were approved by the IEEE Board of Directors and are referenced in the IEEE Civility Policy.

If you are currently participating in IEEE activities that involve working with children, or plan to do so, you will need to visit the IEEE Activities with Children page and complete the following requirements:

  1. Review IEEE Guidelines for Working with Children and Procedures for Working with Children.
  2. Register IEEE-sponsored programs involving children with the IEEE Office of Risk and Insurance Management Services a minimum of 90 days prior to the start of the program.
  3. Complete on-line training provided by Praesidium, IEEE’s partner.
  4. Volunteers and employees may also be required to undergo a background screening.

Important: IEEE volunteers and employees who do not complete the requirements are not authorized to participate in IEEE activities and programs that involve children.

A complete list of frequently asked questions also is available on the IEEE Activities with Children page.

For more information, please contact Karyn Connor or Frank M. Giannattasio from the IEEE Office of Risk and Insurance Management Services at


**The vTools are sponsored by IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities (MGA), which serves the needs of IEEE members by supporting IEEE Regions, Councils, Areas, Sections, Chapters, Affinity Groups, Student Branches, Student Branch Chapters and HKN Chapters and is responsible for IEEE membership, and member development.
