Student Association for the Advancement of Women
SAAW is a nonprofit organization that was founded by Brooklyn Tech High School students. We wanted to make a nonprofit organization that would mobilize students in NYC to advance women's rights and leadership abilities by volunteering, fundraising, and educating.
Volunteer - We have group volunteering sessions at various community organizations that are dedicated to social issues, serving the community, and advancing women’s rights and leadership.
Educate - We host guest speakers at our schools and in our communities in order to raise awareness.
Fundraise - We also fundraise for several organizations.
We currently have chapters in two schools - Brooklyn Technical High School and the HIgh School for Health Professions and Human Services. Our chapter in Brooklyn Tech is affiliated with the Women's Leadership Club.
As a student, you can make a chapter of SAAW in your school and community and join our association of students who want to make the world better for women!
