Interest Groups and Community Action
Arlington AAUW has a book discussion group, twice-monthly International Coffees where we serve as mentors to women connected with their countries’ diplomatic corps, a bridge group, a theater group and a Lobby Corps that regularly visits Capitol Hill.
We mentor girls enrolled in the Arlington Mill High School Continuation Program through our “Lunch Bunch” program, and we are a Partner in Education with Barrett Elementary School, where we tutor students, help with Reading is Fundamental book distributions, and assist in the library.
We support the Arts in Arlington with our annual Elizabeth Campbell Award for the Advancement of the Arts, and we annually honor an Arlington “Educator of the Year” for his or her work in promoting girls’ education with our annual Springs Awards and luncheon.
We promote opportunity for women through our support of the AAUW Educational Opportunities Fund and Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF).
