More on our Savvy Teens Seminars


This project was funded in part by the Initiative Foundation, a regional community foundation, and the Saint Cloud Area (MN) Branch of AAUW.


Savvy Teens is the Saint Cloud AAUW Branch’s third community service initiative aimed at helping young women establish themselves as tomorrow’s leaders in their communities and the fields of their choice.

  • Savvy Teens connects high school girls with the resources and insight they will need to make post-high school education choices.
  • The branch’s annual STEM-focused TechSavvy event is aimed at stimulating middle school girls’ interests in the sciences.
  • Another initiative provides scholarships for area college women to attend the annual National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.
