I belong to the Cabrillo-Diego chapter of AAUW and we raise runds from the membership each year to send girls to Tech Trek, the summer technology/science camp. I'm very proud of our members' response to our appeals for donations. We have grown fro funding a few girls to this year being able to send 8 girls to camp, well on our way to 9. The girls tell us the experience is life changing, opening doors to them they never dreamed of, giving them a glimpse of what they can be, what they can do in the fields of science and technology. We encourage our members to consider this their charitable donation of the year and experience the joy of changing a young woman's life. It's the best feeling in the world!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
hearing the stories of the young women who attend the summer camp, how their lives have changed because of the experience, and how grateful they are for this opportunity.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...increase our membership so more women can participate in reaching their hand to the next generation.
Professional with expertise in this field & My role was to encourage our members to support middle school girls to attend Tech Trek.
