Extending Girls' Horizons
 

A partnership between AAUW and the Girl Scouts that focuses on the development of leadership skills, and awareness of women's rights.  Programs also include community service, conflict resolution, public speaking, and arts and crafts.

An outgrowth of the Girls Conference and the reunions we held for several years, Extending Girls' Horizons offers a variety of stand-alone monthly events and short event series in leadership development and S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to girls in grades 6-12 throughout Dutchess County. The Girl Scouts mission statement, "To build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place", made them a natural partner with AAUW in this initiative.  They arrange for the venues, girls, chaperones, transportation, and insurance, while AAUW plans the programs and provides presenters.
