AAUW Mt. Vernon Branch was founded in 1956. We meet monthly from September through May with many activities interspersed throughout the year. We have a book group, Gourmet dining group, and a team of volunteers who read aloud to children in housing crisis through The Reading Connection. We hold presentations monthly on a variety of interesting topics related to the AAUW Mission. In 2013 we began ImprompEvents. To participate, members reach out for companionship on a variety of events and activities whenever they wish.
We are involved in community outreach with United Communities Ministries and Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services in the Mt. Vernon area.
Annually we co-sponsor, with the Alexandria Branch, a play at The Little Theatre of Alexandria to raise funds for AAUW Funds and our community outreach.
