The Education Community Service Project encourages clubwomen to create learning opportunities for themselves and their communities through volunteerism.
It includes two programs:
The Education in the Community Program motivates members to support programs that urge lifelong education. From supporting local libraries to the pursuit of continued learning in the Epsilon Sigma Omicron (ESO) program, GFWC members encourage self-education and awareness through literature and continuing education. They also work to help students pursue higher education by providing numerous scholarships to deserving students.
The Focus on Literacy Program focuses on getting children excited about reading, tutoring those children and adults in need of extra assistance, and promoting and participating in adult literacy programs. Clubwomen are important fixtures in the community, not only tutoring, but also offering new and exciting programs for kids. GFWC members also give their time to English as a Second Language (ESL) programs and teach courses that help adults pass citizenship tests.
