What is a VBE?

VBE stands for Volunteer Babywearing Educator. It is the entry level and basic accreditation through Babywearing International. Every recognized Babywearing International Chapter requires a minimum of two VBEs.  A VBE is required to have a basic knowledge of babywearing and skills in all basic carriers and carries as well as knowledge of safety and ideal positioning while babywearing; familiarity with BWI’s teaching stances is also expected.  VBEs should also be able to effectively teach basic carries and help wearers troubleshoot.  The VBE accreditation is reserved for educators who are affiliated with a chapter of Babywearing International.

What is a CSV?

CSV stands for Chapter Support Volunteer.  Chapter Support Volunteers (CSVs) are chapter volunteers who serve in a variety of capacities within local BWI chapters including (but not limited to) administrative roles or educators in training.  All CSVs will be voting members of BWI and covered by BWI insurance when serving as a volunteer for their local chapter.  Dues are $30 annually, paid directly to BWI.  All CSVs will be required to agree to a code of ethics and will be members of the Chapter Volunteer Forums (previously called VBE Forums) on TheBabywearer.com and Facebook.
