GFWC-NC Clubwomen are true volunteers in action, working to improve communities across the state by supporting arts, encouraging civic involvement, preserving natural resources, advancing education, and promoting mental and physical health and wellness. GFWC-NC clubs work to achieve the goals of the Community Service Programs: Arts and Culture, Civic Engagement and Outreach, Education and Libraries, Environment, and Health and Wellness. Special Programs; Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention and Advocates for Children, Advancement Areas, and Statewide Initiatives provide additional areas for Clubwomen to make a difference.
As community service volunteer organizations, GFWC clubs are encouraged to work within those programs that will help meet a need within their own community and/or where there is interest among the members. Many of the organizations GFWC-NC has worked with over the past years on the state and local level will be included within the Collaboration projects. GFWC clubs work with and provide support to the programs of national partners or national partner’s local affiliates. The partners will be designated by GFWC, and are organizations that have committed to a formal relationship with GFWC.
In addition to these core areas, GFWC- NC also fosters special projects and programs on a variety of issues.
