Interest Groups

Interest groups are one of the many benefits of AAUW Vero Beach membership.  Our members get involved with each other and the community to engage in a variety of topics and activities. 

Student Writing

Creative Writing Group

Our writers meet monthly at a restaurant or home to share and discuss their writing.  They periodically publish a book. Their most recent is “WOMEN’S WORDS A Collection: Poems and Short Stories” published in 2017. All AAUW branch members are encouraged to submit their poetry or short stories.

Lunch Bunch

On the last Friday of each month (October – May, except Nov) this group meets strictly for fellowship and good food! It’s a great opportunity for new and current members to join in and get acquainted in an informal social atmosphere.  A different restaurant is chosen each month, which provides new dining experiences, too.

A small donation is collected for contribution toward scholarship funding.

International Relations Group

This is a current events/foreign policy discussion group that examines topics provided by the Foreign Policy Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1918 and dedicated to inspiring the American public to learn more about the world. Each meeting focuses on a selected topic and includes review of both reading material and a video followed by discussion.  It is a lively group with about a dozen members.

Adult Literacy

Members tutor adults in reading or English as a Second Language, in cooperation with Literacy Services of Indian River County.  

Chair:  Linda Barker, 703-898-8260

Members Helping Members

Volunteers in this group are interested in helping other members when they have a problem such as a computer question or need assistance such as a ride to an appointment or AAUW meeting, etc.
A list of volunteers is maintained. There is no long-term commitment required, just whenever you can pitch in.  

Reading Groups

We currently have multiple reading groups that meet at various times and locations.  The books are selected by each group’s members and thus vary by group. The discussions are always interesting and lively. Please visit our events page for the latest list of groups and meeting details.
