AAUW is dedicated to education. Cabrillo-Diego Branch contributes to the Educational Foundation, which supports graduate students and funds national research studies. We sponsor middle school young women who participate in Tech Trek, a science and math summer camp program, and we also co-sponsor other programs for adolescent girls and education in general with other community agencies.
Founded in 1881, the AAUW now represents over 150,000 college graduates across the United States. The Association is also part of the International Federation of University Women (IFUW) with members in 67 countries around the world. At state, national and international levels, AAUW values and seeks members of every race, creed, age, national origin, sexual orientation, and level of physical ability.
