Who We Are & What We Do

Mission: “AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.”

Vision: “AAUW will be a powerful advocate and visible leader in equity and education through research, philanthropy and measurable change in critical areas impacting the lives of women and girls.”

The Prescott Branch of AAUW was organized in 1949 and today has over 180 members.

Members have the opportunity to participate in a number of community action activities such as Sister to Sister, where we host luncheons annually for local high school students to encourage them to pursue higher education, and Woman to Woman, a one-on-one mentoring program for single mothers returning to college. Our Public Policy Committee studies important issues that impact our community and support our mission.

The branch also offers a growing number of diverse interest groups such as Great Decisions, Book (discussion) Groups, Hiking Group, Photography Group, Craft Group, etc. Please refer to both the Calendar Pages and Interest Group Pages  as well as the newsletter section for more details.

At our monthly general meetings the branch offers interesting and educational programs on a variety of important topics. These meetings also offer opportunities to meet and socialize with many interesting women. In addition, our branch has endowed the Mary Alice Moulton Childcare Assistance Fund and the AAUW Centennial Scholarship through the Yavapai College Foundation.
