North Tahoe AAUW is comprised of members residing along the lake from Incline Village down the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. We include the communities of Incline Village, Kings Beach, Tahoe City, Homewood, Tahoma, and Truckee.
The North Lake Tahoe AAUW Branch was formed in 1973 and combined women from both California and Nevada. The branch was represented at both California and Nevada AAUW Conventions. Ten years later, to better serve the interests of members and accommodate transportation concerns with snow or traffic congestion, the branch split into the North Tahoe and Incline Village (now Tahoe Nevada) branches. Several of our members maintain dual membership in these organizations as well as other nearby AAUW branches, including South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, or Reno.
The North Tahoe Branch of AAUW welcomes you!!
Our members enjoy living, working, and playing in one of the most beautiful places in the world and still manage to give much of their time and energy to support education and equity for women and girls. Advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research is the Mission of AAUW. In support of this mission, our branch provides yearly support to local young girls,
- Sending 4-6 girls to Tech Trek, a science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall,
- Sending 1 girl to Girls State, a leadership and citizenship-training program offered to young women in California by the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA), and
- Providing a $1000 scholarship for a high school senior entering college.
Our branch has active and interesting “special interest” groups to join, including Marathon Bridge, In Stitches, a Book group, Great Decisions discussion group and a Gourmet dinner group.
Please check our calendar (http://northtahoe-ca.aauw.net) for our general meetings on the second Thursday of the month. We have varied and interesting speakers and would love to have you join us.
We look forward to meeting you.
