Through this program, clubs may develop and implement creative projects that promote a healthy lifestyle; increase awareness, prevention, research, and treatment of disease; target personal development; address the issues of hunger, inadequate housing, and homelessness; and/or prevent or correct financial difficulties.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
-William Butler Yeats
How often have we read this quote and wondered how we can light
a fire? Education opens doors to a new life of opportunities for our
youth as well as those returning to school, whether it is in a degree
program or a self-improvement course. Aren’t we learning and
expanding our knowledge our whole life? Each time we pick up a book to
read, we are acquiring some insight into another step into the world of
knowledge and learning. This is one huge way we may eventually make a
difference in our lives, communities, and the world.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD THROUGH THE LIFE OF A CHILD
GFWC Juniors’ Special Program: Advocates for Children is designed to encourage all General, Junior, and Juniorette clubs to make a difference in our world by becoming advocates for children. Clubs may choose to organize projects that benefit children in their community, state, or world.
The goal of the GFWC Signature Program: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention is to increase awareness of and help prevent the widespread occurrence of domestic abuse in communities across the nation by supporting existing activities, working with various established programs, and initiating educational opportunities for club members and local citizens. GFWC is a powerful voice for those who have no voice.
CIVIC AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES ARE KEY COMPONENTS IN OUR LIVES
The GFWC Public Issues Community Service Program is designed
to actively connect members with effective projects and activities
relating to civic and social responsibilities.
Dues are $50 per year and payable between January 1 and September 1.
HOW CAN YOUR CLUB MAKE A GLOBAL IMPACT?
The GFWC International Outreach Community Service Program is designed to enable members to become better world citizens through advocacy, education, and action, which will, in turn, affect change in and for our global friends and their communities.
