AAUW Port Townsend supports education in East Jefferson County in many ways.

Early Literacy Tutoring
We sponsor two programs:


Math Projects
AAUW members have partnered with others in the community to improve the math competency of third graders in Port Townsend and Chimacum public schools using small-group activities and individualized computer instruction.

Career Days have been suspended
Each spring from 1995 to 2018, Port Townsend AAUW sponsored Career Days for eighth-grade students in Port Townsend and Chimacum/Quilcene. The middle school students had a chance to interact with local professionals and learn about careers which might interest them. Sometimes such contacts helped give students a direction, and  inspired them to continue their education.
