AAUW supports educational programs for girls and young women to encourage the pursuit of studies and careers in STEM fields. We currently have two projects.

 

MATH BUDDIES

Chair: Barbara Van Itallie or 845/462-3924
 

Poughkeepsie Branch AAUW is pleased to partner with Literacy Connections on a new initiative, Math Buddies.  The program is modeled after Literacy Connection’s very successful Book Buddies where volunteers go into elementary school to assist children with reading.

 

Math Buddies work in grades one through five in local schools helping struggling students with their math skills. Volunteers work one-on-one with the students or with groups in the classroom, as specifically directed by the classroom teacher. Volunteers typically offer about one hour per week although there is often flexibility in scheduling. Potential volunteers need not be math or elementary teachers and should not be concerned about any new approaches to math since the material is very basic. This is an extremely rewarding experience since offering any extra help in both math and confidence-building is particularly needed.
