AAUW
October 4, 2011

For many years, the AAUW Erie Branch has supported our organization, Environment Erie. The members have graciously awarded us numerous grants for educational programs geared towards undeserved girls in our community. The members however take funding to the next level by becoming personally involved in the programs and making a positive impact on the girls served!

For instance, this past year the AAUW Erie Branch funded a program that offered four field trips for girls age 11-14 that created an awareness and generated an interest in green collar careers. The four field trips took place during after-school hours and included a snack and light supper prepared by member of AAUW. Members also presented during the dinner hour; interacting with the girls, sharing personal experiences and career advice.

Each week, the girls left the program with heightened energy and a renewed since of self confidence and ability! I often see the same girls at different events and they always ask if they will have the opportunity to once again be part of the AAUW after school program.

The Great!
