Projects and Partnerships
We created a Days for Girls Club (DFG), housed under Schreyer for Women, which is part of a larger non-profit organization that increases access to menstrual care and education through the creation of environmentally sustainable and reusable pads. This year, we hope to grow our capacity to fundraise and sew menstruation kits to propel our vision of sustainable service.
State College Community Engagement
We have partnered with the Nittany Valley Charter School to build connections with their students and staff! This spring, we created workshops centered around women in STEM and did science activities with the students to show them that we can do anything! We also did a lunch session with some of the graduating middle schoolers, answering their questions about the transition to high school and life in general.
We partner with Girl Scouts troops local to the State College area through our Girl Scouts Committee. This committee creates and organizes events that allow Girls Scouts to earn badges all while support our mission. Recently hosted a College Knowledge workshop for juniors and seniors in High School on topics such as 'starting the process', 'the application process', 'financial planning', 'getting set for success', and 'building healthy habits'. We are excited about our partnership and we look forward to continue providing this opportunity for our local troops.
Schreyer for Women members have the opportunity to engage with young women ages 17-23 through our partner organization 'Power Dada' (sisters) in Kenya. Similar to Schreyer for Women, 'Power Dada' is an organization that strives to empower young women through community and career development. This partnership is an incredible opportunities for our members to connect via email, cross culturally with young women who share similar interests and passions.
SfW believes in using its opportunities for greater purpose and impact. Our members are dedicated to championing women and girls and empowering them in the way that makes them feel supported. Through projects in the local and international community, we aspire to have positive and sustainable impact.
