Welcome to AAUW Palm Springs!
Empowering Women and Girls in the Coachella Valley

Get to know us! We have a lot of fun between our monthly luncheons and interest groups, while we promote educational achievement for women and girls. We send 7th-grade girls to a STEM camp every year in our grand tradition known as Tech Trek. Best of all, we get to hear about what they learned when they return from camp! Monthly luncheons occur on the second Saturday of the month, beginning at 11:30 am. Don’t miss our amazing speakers. If you have any questions about AAUW Palm Springs, please email us at aauwpalmspringsbranch@gmail.com.



Meet the girls we sent to STEM Camps last summer and hear about the impact our donations had on them.
