The GFWC has six Community Service Project areas. Club members are encouraged to select an area based on their interest:
Community Service Programs
Arts – The GFWC Arts Community Service Program encourages members to promote and support arts activities in all communities. It is designed to inspire clubwomen. Create programs and projects that include music, dance, drama, theatre, and other arts-related areas, both traditional and innovative. The artistic experience can be outward reaching or for inner satisfaction.
Conservation – The GFWC Conservation Community Service Program is designed for members to gain an appreciation for our environment. Through preservation, maintenance, and restoration of our natural resources, it strives to educate members about the importance of beautifying our communities; preserving, maintaining, and restoring natural resources; and stimulating citizen action to address these concerns. Our natural resources include, but are not limited to, water, trees, plants, air, land, and wildlife.
Education - The GFWC Education Community Service Program is designed to promote a commitment to lifelong learning by encouraging members and others to foster and support educational opportunities in their communities. Educate members and others about rates of low literacy and stimulate citizen action to address impact and concerns related to literacy. Our Education Committee focuses on projects raising awareness of adult and youth literacy and continuing education programs especially among women.
Home Life - The GFWC Home Life Community Service Program is designed to inform members of issues that affect the well-being of individuals, families, and communities by providing opportunities and resources to meet and address needs through volunteering. 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.
International Outreach - 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.
Public Issues - The GFWC Public Issues Community Service Program is designed to actively connect members with effective projects and activities relating to civic and social responsibilities. This program focuses on the following areas:
Citizenship, Military Personnel, Emergency and Disaster Preparedness, Safety and Crime Prevention
Other areas in which our club is involved: Community Improvement, Leadership Development, Tallulah Falls School.
