You can help inspire a girl to be strong, smart and bold by sponsoring her attendance at the Live Your Dream Girls’ Conference. Our members’ and friends' generosity in the past years has made the difference.  Your help can come in many forms, but we are asking for sponsorships for individual girls.

What is the Girls’ Conference? 

The annual event is an inspirational day designed specifically for 6th and 7th grade girls who face the challenges of the middle school years. Conference workshops focus on encouraging and empowering girls to dream about the future and provide them with resources, role models, and a chance to express themselves.

The conference, presented in partnership with Dutchess Community College, is funded by the Poughkeepsie Branch AAUW, Inc. through fundraising and donations from individual members.  The conference is organized and staffed by the women of AAUW and the facilitators donate their time.
