Community Action Projects

Community Action proposals are submitted to the joint board meeting of the branch, often in May.  A project must be in accordance with the AAUW mission of demonstrating a commitment to the community, and a local branch member is responsible for coordinating the activity.

Adopt an Author  Children’s Author Festival
Humboldt County hosts a biennial event, during which 25 or more authors of children’s books from across the U.S. visit 60 schools and speak to thousands of students in grades K-8.  AAUW Humboldt provides sponsorship for the festival.

Continuation Education Award
Humboldt Branch presents a Chromebook to an outstanding female graduate of one or more Humboldt County Continuation schools. School personnel selects the student and, if possible, a local AAUW representative makes the presentation at the graduation ceremony.

Children’s Book Drive
Branch members are asked to donate new or gently used children’s books for distribution to organizations throughout the year.
