Welcome to the Tyler, Texas Branch of AAUW!

TX7077_AAUW_hiresWe are located in Tyler, Texas, the Rose Capital of the World!  We have been a branch since 1931 and we continue to give back to our community in many exciting ways!  We invite you to explore our website for more information about what we do and we hope that you might even consider joining us!  You can also learn of upcoming events by joining us on facebook.

Since the first meeting in 1881, the American Association of University Women has been a catalyst for change and improving women’s lives.  Today, AAUW boasts more than 170,000 members and supporters – women and men of different generations, races, and political affiliations.  With 1,000 branches and 800 college and university partners, AAUW members across the country contribute to a more promising future for women and girls.

STEM Like a Girl

AAUW Tyler partners with Discovery Science Place on February 23, 2019 for the “STEM Like a Girl” program. Up to 60 middle school aged girls attend this event, free of charge. They interact with female professionals in the STEM fields and conduct hands on activities related to each area.
How can you help? We need 6-8 volunteers for the day of the event from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Volunteers assist with registration, meal set up and helping guide the hands on activities. This is an easy volunteer event and it is rewarding to watch the girls engaged in STEM.
Contact Diane Kavanaugh if you can volunteer.

Second Sunday Cinema

We’re rebranding our “Movies that Matter” interest group into “Second Sunday Cinema”. Mark your calendars for the 2nd Sunday of every month for an afternoon at the movies. Our first “Second Sunday Cinema” is scheduled for Sunday, February 10th. The weekend movie schedule is usually posted by Wednesday afternoons. I’ll send an email out by Thursday of that week and we can narrow down what movie and time based on those who are available.

Contact Diane Kavanaugh if you’d like to be in the group.

Board Games Interest Group

Our next outing of the Board Games Group is on Tuesday, February 19th at Boards & Bites located in the Green Acres Shopping Center (next to Dollar General). We’ll start at 6:30. $15.00 total cost for our group lets us play games as long as we want. Boards & Bites has hundreds of games to choose from for all ages and interests. They have sandwiches and other food to order if you haven’t had a chance to eat dinner before coming out. Cost of game playing is determined by number attending. Cost of food/beverage is on your own.

Our next outing will be the 3rd Tuesday in April.
